Tharon Ann: From orphan, to actress, to mother, to seeker

"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.

About the Author
Jennifer lives in Princeton, New Jersey, with her husband, musician Doug Brookins. They frequently travel to India, and based upon those experiences, she is writing the sequel to "Tharon Ann," about their travels in the Punjab, India, and the fascination with a country considered to be the cradle of humanity.
