Jane Gilbert has written both for business and for fun. Part of her work involves community development, grant writing and creating comprehensive plans for communities. Over the years she earned several awards and has been recognized by government agencies and colleges for various genres of writings. She has published children’s books, poetry, a family cookbook entitled "This Taste Bud's For You," short stories, and two books composed of diverse writing genres: "I Need Music When I Write" and "Slow Dance on the Sand." These are self-published paperbacks for personal use or projects she was asked to do for donations or on commission.
Jane currently is compiling facts and experiences to write about her mother's wisdom and fortitude. Gleva M. Jacobson, who passed away at the age of 90 on February 18, 2015, was an entrepreneur.
The author's books are donated to nonprofits to help make a difference in the world. She has donated over 5,000 copies of eBooks and paperbacks on a variety of topics for both children and adults.
