Jane Herr Desrosiers discovered another passion in acting.  She has performed in numerous theaters in New London and Windham counties.  Some of her favorite roles have been: Dame in the Hats the Musical, Clairee in Steel Magnolias, Mom in A Nice Family Gathering, and The Tupperware Lady in Sealed for Freshness.  Jane has also lent her voice to the radio adaptation of Pride and Prejudice portraying Mrs. Bennett.


Jane Herr Desrosiers is thrilled to bring to her readers the Gone Fishing trilogy.  Gone Fishing The Hook, The Line and The Sinker are in publication and ready for readers to enjoy.  The response that she has received from local book clubs to the Connecticut Author’s Trail has reinforced her passion for writing. Her sense of humor and her ability to turn the plot make this book series truly comfort food for your brain. Growing up in Canterbury, Connecticut and now residing in Baltic, Connecticut, Jane has blended the people who have touched her life into the mosaic of the souls of her down-home characters. Jane is also working on a collection of short stories and poems, portions of which will appear in her blog.  She enjoys life with her husband Eddy and their family, and her two cats Ozzie, aka Mr. Striper, and Harriet, watch for her appearance in Gone Fishing The Sinker!

Justice of the Peace

Jane Herr Desrosiers considers it a privilege when she has been selected to officiate at weddings.  “It is such a wonderful feeling when I look into the eyes of the couple as they take their vows.”  She has the authority to perform weddings anywhere in the state of Connecticut.  Sample vows are available upon request.

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'.  -Erma Bombeck
