WOW Wednesday! Wowing a bright star called Jane Carroll!

10385213_739834262705659_1076713598_nThere is one person who brings me joy every day. Whose posts I’m eager to read and whose words of wisdom never stops surprising me. Jane Carroll may not know it, but her energy and her apt daily quotes are an inspiration to me. She has this light in her that lightens up everyone near her…and Bertha…she is so funny and has always the right words on the tip of his tongue. Don’t know who Bertha is? Poor you! Bertha is a character from Jane’s books. A woman with endless wits in her pocket…a phenomenon…a wonder woman and a person behind the Berthaism. So thank you, Jane. If you ever feel down, remember that you’re someone’s star! 


Jane Carroll, Author of Bertha-Size Your Life! and Becoming Bertha, is a Life Coach, Registered Nurse, Reiki Master, Mother, Grandmother, and long-time student of life. She has seen the focus of her over 30 year nursing career change from illness to wellness to wholeness, a philosophy that permeates everything she does.

While she enjoys all aspects of her life, writing is her passion and she is currently working on Bertha’s latest adventures.

When life hands you an ostrich…make a boa ~ Bertha

About jenniferloiske

Jennifer Loiske lives in Finland in Naantali, which is a small sunny town on the southwest coast. She is a pre-school teacher by profession but she stayed at home when her youngest daughter suffered brain fever, which developed severe epilepsy in 2004. She is a workaholic Teen/Young Adult author, who loves dark fantasy, teen movies, chips and candies and warm sunny days. She’s also very keen on charity work and a big part of her royalties goes to the charity; mainly to help families with epileptic children but also to the epilepsy units in the hospitals. As a huge fan of dark novels Jennifer's bookshelf is full of books from L.J. Smith, Alyson Noel, Stephanie Meyer, Chloe Neill, Michelle Rowen, Jennifer L. Armentrout, Amanda Hocking and Lauren Kate. She’s also a huge fan of music from Evanescence, Linkin Park, Within Temptation, OneRepublic and Disturbed. But her hunger for music is endless and depend on what mood she’s in or what kind of book she’s working on. She can be pretty much an omnivore when it comes to music.
