About Jan

     Award-winning author and philosophical muse Jan Porter brings unsung heroes to life in her notable collection of prize-winning books.

     A connoisseur of literary fiction with a strong female lead seeks to move and entertain with her humorous and heartfelt novels.

     Born in rural Ontario, Canada, Jan grew up in the great outdoors where she was captivated by the otherworldly allure of indigenous cultures, mysticism and 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. All masterpieces in their own right, the worn covers and tattered pages of these books unearthed a passion for transforming thoughts into words. Handwritten scribbles became typewritten short stories, but it was only after a long career in Human Services that Jan decided to shine the spotlight on her writing and bring her female protagonists to life.

     After completing a Metaphysical Minister’s degree, she cocoons in a northern Ontario sanctuary, where she pens books with strong female heroines and personal growth books that had long been in various stages of completion.

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