Soul Skin literary fiction Life overflows with problems as middle aged Navi strives to cope with; a child's cancer, marital heartbreak, a stifling rural church community, a scandalous love affair, job loss, menopause and a haunting dark shadow nemesis. Heart broken and shamed, lost and alone with her daughter, she is comforted by her dead Grandmother and a mysterious soul skin man. Slammed into an impossible otherworldly journey, self discovery comes through ancient sisterhood teachings and sacred dream journeying to historic events in; a Nazi death camp, a pre-civil war deep south, indigenous North America, as Joan of Arc, audience with Lord Byron, as a wolf mate and more. Banished alone and penniless, it is the love bond of her daughter, Gran and soul skin man that carries her through. Navi candidly explores life in a thought provoking and poignant commentary. Her old soul spirit gradually earthquake shakes lose and awakens to lift on shamanic winds. In following the power of fate, Navi finally stumbles onto her true calling; as a bridge between two worlds, she must return the divine feminine ancient wisdom teachings and share the magic of the cosmos, to all. "Woman, you were not made to be tame and small, you are a divine spark in a timeless sisterhood collective; you are an old wise soul and you came to change the course of history." *Reader Comments Sampling: "I really have no words after reading this several times. Beautifully written and the imagery is more than familiar in glimpses not of conscious awake/aware thought... The very beginning to the excerpt seem to have elements of an OBE, yet I have not heard or read of one to date that connects to a past life. Thank you for sharing this with me." Soul Skin is a journey, several journeys, through the eyes, minds, soul, and spirits of very real people bound together by the tiny silver threads that connect all living things. It is Sometimes, surreal, sometimes, brown dirt real, yet always, enchantingly engulfing the mind. It takes you to places that you have always been and to where you have never traveled. It is alive, in the moment and in days gone by. It is a journey, with a life of its own, very easy to slip into; fitting just like skin, and then beyond skin, to the very essence of all that is. It is a roller coaster ride of sights, sounds, and images; all coming up from the pages, like a 3D movie on the inside of your eyelids. You read, stop, digest, and are hungry for more. It is one of those books that you wish would never end. I look forward to the next leg of the journey." Buster Fykes-Editor/Musician "Soul Skin" Hey Literary Genius!

About Jan I Porter

Author Bio in short: "I find the magic of the past and cosmos within every day unsung heroes, sheroes and the human condition to share with you. I am a philosophical ponderer of human nature, quantum physics, spirit world, nature and of the cosmos, hence I do not hold to any one particular tradition as a one higher truth or one size fits all. Viva la diversity! I aim to share thought provoking human conditions, touch on that bigger picture of spirituality, mystical, ancient traditions or quantum physics through the ancient art of storytelling; real people, unsung unlikely heroes and a touch of the magical. I confess, I have not owned a television for over thirty years; I would rather be lost in a creative project, coach teaching, bare foot nature communing, loving up my loved ones and writing with U2, some good blues music, Celtic, acoustic guitar or shamanistic chant playing in the background. I recall as a young child, being held captivated with magical yarns of indigenous cultures, saints, mysticism and shamanism and Robert Service's tales of the north northern wilderness . As a teen I found old battered copies of Voltaire's 'Candide', Margaret Caven's 'I Heard the Owl Call My Name' and anything ancient mystical shaman which my awkward geeky adolescent soul hungered for. Inspired, I first dabbled with typewritten short stories, articles and poetry founding a funky alternative secondary school newspaper 'Cool School News'. After many years of work in Human Services, evening ferocious spiritual, quantum or philosophical reading while raising children (all much food for character and story seeds) followed by a long arduous post-secondary completion of world religions, philosophy and spiritual sciences. I am carving a new path that takes all of the good of our ancestors and the hope for tomorrow to make a splash!I aim to offer insights and wisdom of our human condition with higher insights and to empower inspire and am the founder of the ad hoc Soul Works Gifting Foundation. *For more information on Jan's work or Connect via, GoodReads, Google+, Twitter, Kindle Mojo, YouTubeshow more
