About

Jan Sikes openly admits that she never set out in life to be an author. But she had a story to tell. Not just any story, but a true story that rivals any fiction creation. You simply can’t make this stuff up. It all happened. She chose to create fictitious characters to tell the story through, and they bring the intricately woven tale to life in an entertaining way.

She released a series of music CDs to accompany the four biographical fiction books and then published a book of poetry and art to bring the story full circle.

And now that the story is told, this author can’t find a way to put down the pen. She continues to write fiction and has published many short stories with a series of novels waiting in the wings. She is a member of Authors Marketing Guild, The Writer’s League of Texas, the RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB (RRBC), the RAVE WRITER’S INT’L SOCIETY OF AUTHOR (RWISA), sits on the RWISA Executive Council and hosts a monthly RAVE WAVES blog talk radio show, ASPIRE TO INSPIRE.

  2. Hello, Elliott. You can communicate with me at rijan21@gmail.com. I followed the link you listed and I would need clarification as to what you’d want me to review, as I see several albums. Let me know exactly what you are seeking and also links where the music can be purchased. Other info such as a good photo, brief bio (no more than 75 -100 words) and your own contact info will be helpful for a post as well. I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for contacting me.

  4. Love combining music and writing. In grad school, I did presentations of music which fit novels and played on the piano. Think Arnold Schoenberg and twelve tone music with Thomas Mann for example. References made by Mann in Dr. Faustus of Schoenberg. It is not my favorite form of music but the mere idea of incorporating music and German literature fascinated me. Annette von Droste-Huelshoff wrote poetry and piano music. Thank you to Annika Perry for steering me in your direction.
