Years ago, when living in Pennsylvania, someone handed me “The Sleeping Prophet” by Jess Stearn, a book about the life and work of Edgar Cayce, America’s most documented psychic. Fascinated, I began studying the rich material in the Edgar Cayce Readings, keeping dream journals and deciphering the meaning of my dreams; learning meditation; how to identify possible past lives in other cultures, many of mine in South America or the American Southwest, as well as Egypt and Greece; and what it means to live a spiritual life without the dogma of religion. I experimented with the holistic remedies suggested by Cayce, beginning a life-long interest in natural healing.
Returning to my home state of Minnesota, I became writer and editor for the Minnesota Cayce organization’s community newsletter, and began learning and working with energy healing. Fast-forward to Arizona, where I widened my field of spiritual study and energy healing while working in an energy medicine research center where physicists, metaphysicians, and healers freely co-mingled and discovered they were all asking the same questions. I immersed myself in the study of spirituality and metaphysics, adding one healing modality after another to my medicine bag. And by then, I was writing stories.
I finally escaped the ridiculously hot climate in Arizona and fled to Colorado, exchanging hot and sweaty for dizzy and out of breath—in the mile high cities of Colorado Springs and Denver. And here, I spent several years working with master spiritual healer and teacher, Adriene Wentworth, and learning the transformational, high frequency healing method I use today. I saw how valuable this process is, the powerful positive effects it has on people’s lives, the way it can clear out the energies of things like depression, sickness, abuse, even war, and help people finally become clearer and move forward with their lives, sometimes clearing physical symptoms or sickness in the process. I discovered how powerful this work is and how deeply it affects people.
Once again in Minnesota, I produced the first two books in the Spirit Song series, “Cape of the Red Jaguar” a fast-paced paranormal adventure in the Venezuelan rain forest, and “Seeds in the Blood, where the story is carried to Lake Minnetonka, just outside Minneapolis, where we learn an awful lot about how negative outside forces steal our energy and affect our lives, and what we can do about that. I am immensely proud of both of them. The protagonist is a shaman who quite naturally uses natural medicines, speaks with spirit guides, and performs shamanic healing ceremonies.
There is another book in the beginning stages, and as my journey often decides to move ahead before informing me, I am once again in Colorado, living at 7000 feet and working on Spirit Song III.

Christina, sold to a tribal chief to be used as a sacrifice is rescued by Raphael. United through the terrors of an exploding volcano, many other dangerous encounters all while the flame of romance builds for the main characters, Christina and Raphael. I was fantastically entertained by the well written storyline while learning things about Shamanism, energetic healing, and sorcery. I also like the fact the author added a glossary at the end of the book.I really enjoyed this book and recommend it.

I just finished Spirit Song and I have to say that Sherry Janes is one hell of a story teller, and a very good writer!! After many years of technical writing and editing, I often cringe---particularly with first-time authors---at grammatical errors and departures from basic writing rules, but Ms. Janes told a great story, told it excitingly, and told it coherently. Even though Spirit Song is unlike the books I usually choose in my "maturing" years, I was compelled by the smoothness of the narrative, amused by its lightness, and delighted with the verbal visuals. She paints on the jungle canvas with descriptive skill extraordinaire. I was also impressed with the amount of homework the author obviously accomplished for accuracy to the culture, environment, and spiritual framework. I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment.
