Award-winning author Jan Porter brings unsung heroes to life in her notable collection of award-winning books. A connoisseur of literary fiction with strong female leads, Jan seeks to move and entertain with her humorous and heartwarming novels.

     Born in rural Ontario, Canada, Jan grew up in the great outdoors where she was captivated by the tales of small-town rural and the northern wilderness.

     She discovered her destiny to become an author during her teenage years when she came across old copies of Voltaire’s 'Candide', Margaret Caven’s 'I Heard The Owl Call My Name' and the works of Robert Service. The worn pages of old books unearthed a passion for transforming thoughts into stories. Handwritten scribbles became short stories until retiring from a career in Human Services when Jan began to focus on her writing and bring her female protagonists to life.

     Jan is currently cocooned in a northern Ontario sanctuary, where she pens books with strong female heroines and personal growth books.

     With each new release, Jan continues to share the wisdom of unsung heroes and explore the human condition in literature. Jan’s popular contemporary women literary fiction novels and personal growth books are profound, heart-warming, moving, inspiring and often humorous must-reads.
