Jane Jenkins Herlong

SiriusXM Comedian, Southern Humorist, Best-Selling/Award Winner author and member of Speaker Hall of Fame Simon & Shuster Publishing House says of Jane: "Jane Jenkins Herlong’s blend of Southern humor and folksy wisdom is just priceless. She deserves to be right up there with Anita Renfroe and Chonda Pierce- in some ways, she’s even better. The more suburban and bland our culture gets, the more precious genuine Southern culture like this becomes." Jane is the author of five books. Her most recent release, "Rhinestones on My Flip-Flops: Choosing Extravagant Joy in the Midst of Everyday Mess-ups" is published by Faithwords a division of the Hachette Group. (Listen to preview of Jane's new song, "Wear Rhinestones on Your Flip-Flops." https://soundcloud.com/jane-janeherlong-com/rhinestones-on-my-flip-flops). In April of 2022, Jane's newest book, "Sweet Tea Secrets from the Deep-Fried South" will be released through Tyndale House Publishers. “Bare Feet to High Heels; You Don’t Have to be a Beauty Queen to be a Beautiful Person” is Jane’s hilarious journey from the rows of the family’s Lowcountry tomato farm to the runway of the Miss America Pageant and beyond. “What Ta-Tas Teach Us” is dedicated to the memory of Jane’s sister who had breast cancer. This book focuses on the importance of women’s health and being proactive staying healthy both physically and mentally. “Bury Me with My Pearls,” published by Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas, is an Amazon best-seller in 10 categories. This book, dedicated to the memory of Jane’s mother, is filled with humor, life lessons and Biblical principles. "LOVED this book! Had me laughing so hard in spots I was crying!! Loved her approach to life issues. Better to approach it with finding the good in it rather than the bad. In this day and time we need more books like this! This book is a keeper! I know I will reread it again and again. Looking forward to more books by this author." Mary W. Comedian and Humorist Jane’s comedy and singing is heard on Sirius XM Radio, Pandora Internet Radio and available on iTunes. Jane tells original, clean stories with a Southern flare. Adding accents and an original, customized song or two makes for an entertaining experience. "Jane was more fun than you can imagine and she delivers a heartfelt message of hope and courage formed by her life experiences from an early age. Jane keeps you laughing…no doubt the best medicine ever…and she makes you think about how fortunate we are to be who we are. Jane sings like a Broadway performer and you can easily see why she was once Miss South Carolina. She is Southern to the core and will entertain you with her Southern charm. We loved Jane Herlong so much we invited her back…"Bert Wood, Pink Ribbon Luncheon Chair, High Point, NC Professional Singer, Recording Artist and Songwriter Adding to Jane’s presentations is her awarding winning singing. Audiences marvel at Jane’s vocal talent, original songs and customized parodies. Jane has recorded numerous CD’s including: Big Band classics, Country, Patriotic, Christmas and Gospel. Jane has also performed the National Anthem for the Cincinnati Reds, Atlanta Hawks, and for numerous college bowl games. “Jane presentations are a blend of Chonda Pierce and a female version of Jeff Foxworthy…” Today’s American Woman Jane inspires people's lives with truth and humor. There are a lot of performers who make people laugh, and there are a lot of speakers who give audiences solid principles for living. Jane does both. Combining humor, truth and her award-winning singing, Jane adds pizzazz to her presentations with life skills helping audiences work smart, laugh often and live their dreams.

Visit Jane's website. www.janeherlong.com Jane’s keen sense of humor evolved from being labeled Dyslexic and constantly told, “You can’t do that!” Jane changed the word NO to NEXT and the rest is what dreams are made of. Jane’s stories and humor help audiences learn the extraordinary power of humor when handling negative people and circumstances for more positive, productive living. With a sense of humor and smart work, Jane traveled from the rows of her family farm to the runway of the Miss America Pageant all the way to performing at Radio City Music Hall. She graduated from college with the highest honors voted by her peers and continued on to graduate school. Her successes continued to pile up from there.

It was not until I received your message of “never give up” and “everything is possible” that I realized that playing it safe with a less than satisfying job was exactly what I had done. At 51 I will start making “Ketchup and Salsa” out of tomatoes as soon as I get to work tomorrow.” Wesley H.
