More About the Author

I was born below sea level in New Orleans. I grew up there with a taste for delicious food and friendly people. Life took me to New York for thirty-three years - four years of college and my career as a jewelry designer. Now I have the best of all worlds, spending seven months in Florida and five months in Paris, dodging Paris winters and Florida summers.

Below Sea Level won the 2013 Illumination Book Award bronze medal for fiction. I am thrilled.

I was interviewed on Newsmax TV! So nervous, but so much fun! http://www.newsmax.com/NewsmaxTv/jane-foster-novel-addiction-alcoholism/2014/01/24/id/548932/

It was very inspiring and down to earth at the same time.

Her characters come alive amidst the beauty and charm of New Orleans and Paris, places that she describes so well from experiences there.

This is a great book to read not only for the way it is written but to feel what alcoholism can do to a family.

Beautifully written prose that glide you through a story of the challenges we all face at some point. I can relate to the characters' strength and weakness, doubt and faith. I felt the hugs, stings of tears, smelled the foods, I felt right at home in New Orleans!
"No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.' - Albert Einstein; and this book reminds me that I need to reach past my self to overcome my difficulties.
And I love that there is a character with my name!

This is an easy read but not an easy subject. You know you have a problem when your husband kicks over a chair without realizing his little boy is in it. This is an unapologetic look at the disease of alcohol and the power of prayer. THe book is set in New Orleans and Paris, two cities the author knows well. I woke up in the middle of the night to finish the book.

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed "Below Sea Level". In writing this book, I believe that the author is sending a message of hope and forgiveness , not doom or depression. Having watched my Son go through the struggles of addiction recovery, I have seen the hard work that it takes. Though there seems to be a stigma about addiction, I think that the Author is showing us that the real hero in the book is Philip.
He has fought his demons, and as a result, turned back into the man that Lila married. No easy task!
The other message that I got through this book is that of friendship and how extremely important it is in life. I don't think that Lila could have gone through this experience without Angie and Debo's encouragement every step of the way. The religious wisdom of Pastor Jim and Debo was so useful to both Philip and Lila, which I think will help mold the twins' spiritual future. Through all the character's hardships, this book turned out with a very happy conclusion!

Foster's "Below Sea Level" is a treat for all the senses. Her vivid descriptions allow us to experience the sights and sounds, scents and tastes found in two of the most exciting cities in the world. And her gift for characterization reveals many complicated layers of the people who make this book so compelling. I actually could't put it down. Read it in one day. Recommend it wholeheartedly.

"Below Sea Level" is a wonderful read with lovely descriptions of New Orleans, Paris, flowers, and food -- things that are clearly dear to the author. I love the author's simple description of prayer and how it helped lead an alcoholic out of darkness. The book also gives practical, sensitive suggestions for recovery and explains treatment. I hope more books will follow. KGO

Just finished the book this morning. I loved it! Very well written and kept me interested. Pulled me in to the story. I could definitely identify with it, which I am sure many people will. I can't wait for Part 2. Please write a sequel. Everyone will want to follow the lives of Lila and Philip, Augusta and Bobby, Debo......your love of New Orleans and Paris shine through the book, and the importance and power of prayer was very evident in the changing of lives. Very well done!

I loved this book! Jane Foster has done an amazing job of making you feel like you are there...her obvious love and knowledge of New Orleans and Paris are evident, and the characters make you want to "root" for them. I hope there is a sequel! I'll be the first in line!

Ms Foster has written a wonderful true to life book about the ins and outs of recovery in today's world and how that effects families. We need more of these spiritually aware stories that shine a sober light on this terrible debilitating disease .
