Short Description of Your Novel
"Tharon Ann" is a memoir of one woman's life, from orphan, to actress, to mother, to seeker, as the book's byline summarizes. It is written in several voices as her life progresses; the first, her childhood, a voice reminiscent of Faulkner, Williams, and other southern writers; the second, that of an actress who takes us with her into the world of movies, theatre, and television; the third, of a wife and mother who as a single parent, along with her small boys, puts us into the "Old Chevy with a suitcase tied to the top" trekking cross-country to a new life; and finally, the fourth about the richest part of her life, which allows us access into a fantastic journey of the spirit, with openness, humor, and charm. The book is more than a memoir in the traditional sense. It is a road map, a guide on determination, on achievement against all odds on that thing called hope.
Please give a short Author's Bio (please limit to 250 words)
Several months each year, Jennifer travels to India, where her first book, a memoir, Tharon Ann – from Orphan, to Actress, to Mother, to Seeker was completed. It was an effort of 4 1/2 years to complete as it is written in four voices for each phase of her life from childhood to the present; to be followed by a sequel about her travels, and friends they met in the Punjab, India in a small spiritual community. Jennifer gave up her career as an actress in the New York theatre, along with television in Hollywood, to raise and educate three sons as a single mom. She loves to write poetry, cook, work in the garden, but most of all travel to India with her husband, musician/singer/composer/arranger, Doug Brookins.
