“I have enjoyed reading each story with laughter, smiles and just feeling good. You have done a great job and hope there will be another book. I have even re-read some stories as I enjoyed them so much. Thank you.” Positive Attitude
“Hi Jan, Congratulations on all your truly wonderful endeavors! I am really excited to surprise my family and friends with this book. Thanks Jan for your help. My best wishes to you and your family.” Donna
“One of my choice picks is ‘Vovochka’ (page 100). The author’s accounts of her relationship with elephant of the past and that of the present successfully linked the two, creating an excellent contrast of despair and joy. ‘Three Strings,’ (page 187) ‘struck a chord’ with me. It was an amazing lesson in life. ‘You Gotta laugh!’ (page 253)…the surprise ending was a prizewinner! ‘Believe in Facebook’ (page 285)…I found this heartwarming—a genuine feel-good tale.” Sarah
“Such a heart-warming book…thank you.” Sue

Donald H. Harrison, San Diego Jewish World: “An Anthology of Positivity”, Dec. 11, 2011
By virtue of age alone seniors have already been where most of us are yet to go. They’ve seen it all from the valleys below to the mountain tops above. Hot Chocolate for Seniors is an anthology of human experience that speaks to the better side of human nature from the perspective of seniors who have special memories to share, not just with other seniors, but with people from all generations. A quick glance at the chapter headings provides a road map for the reader to jump in where ever he or she pleases to learn a life lesson, to smile, to pray, to be surprised, to laugh, to imagine, to be inspired and to ponder a the meaning of it all through the eyes of those who have walked the walk, not just talked the talk. Recommend that you buy a copy of Hot Chocolate for Seniors, for your own library as well as a gift for friends and loved ones who will much appreciate your thoughtfulness.

The ORACLE speaks with Jan Fowler, the foremost expert on things “Being Senior.” Energetic and spunky, a women with a head on her shoulders and wit to boot! I want to be like her when I grow up. That’s what I’m talking about. (my alter ego speaks) It’s going to be a great show. Jan’s new book Hot Chocolate for Seniors sizzles.
