Jane Kirkpatrick is a writer, speaker, teacher and mental health professional. Her award-winning essays, articles, and humor have appeared in over fifty publications such as Decision, Country and Daily Guideposts. The inspiration for A Sweetness to the Soul grew from a fifty-year old essay a Depression-era schoolboy wrote about his distant ancestors - the Sherars.

A lively and humorous speaker, Kirkpatrick is a frequent keynote presenter for conferences, women's retreats, and workshops. In addition to her historical fiction which dramatizes pioneer life, Homestead relates, with love and laughter, her own family's modern-day struggle to catch a dream in the Oregon Territory.

Jane Kirkpatrick recommends
The River Remembers (2023)
Linda Ulleseit
"Storyteller Linda Ulleseit shares a fabulous account of frontier women - white, Native, and Black - in a variety of social statuses, tenderly conveyed. Taken from actual histories, each woman seeks independence and thinks she is willing to endure the consequences. Linda brings to life the p rairies of Michigan Territory and the emotional demands on lives changing day by day. I read well into the night and didn't want to let these women go! Neither will readers everywhere."
All That Fills Us (2022)
Autumn Lytle
"With humor and compassion, intricate insights, and singular descriptions, Autumn Lytle has captured the pain of encroaching mental illness. May there be many more healing stories from this truly gifted author."
Never Let Go (2021)
Pamela Nowak
"Exquisite detail, and a compelling narrative, (this novel)is an extraordinary gift of story-telling."
