Jan Marshall

Jan is founder of the International Humor and Healing Institute established in 1986. She worked with board members Norman Cousins and Steve Allen as well as prominent physicians in promoting hope and humor in healing. As a long term cancer survivor, "Jan's Army" acknowledges and sends "Badges of Courage" to other heroes.

Jan writes a weekly newspaper humor column - “Lightening With Jan” for the GLOBE and a contributor for several online magazines and newspapers. The Anthology "Open Doors: Fractured Fairy Tales" features Jan's historical, hysterical chapter called, "Where Are They Now?"

Jan's latest book is Dancin, Schmancin With The Scars: Finding the Humor No Matter What! The next one is Stretch Marks: Ageless Wisdom for Sexy Old Broads and is in the editing stage.

"Jan’s bliss is encouraging us to find joy and laughter no matter their circumstances. She believes that in the fabric of life there are threads of pain and sorrow which have to be healed. Yet in between, in actuality, that not a shred of evidence exists that life is serious!" “Jan’s writing is so full of humor and a zest for living. Her books literally sing.” —PHYLLIS DILLER

Dancin' Schmancin' with the Scars

Perhaps for some of us, the golden boomer age and beyond has tarnished a bit with health issues, loss in general and major disappointments. Put away the pills; wipe those tears and get over here. There is a way out and it can be fun. Laughter heals and connects us. Dancin, Shmancin shows us the way, painlessly and you do not even have to know how to dance. Jan Marshall turns life’s daily hassles into a ridiculous scenario by using exaggeration, satire and a tad of truth.
