About The Book

ASoultoShineAmazonTitle: A Soul to Shine

Author: Jennifer Ott

Genre: Literary Fiction


“You and I are now time itself, not just the city,
The whole world is taking part in our decision.
We are more than just the two of us now.
We embody something.
We are sitting in the People’s Square
And it’s full of people with the same dream as ours.
We define the game for all.

I’m ready.”


Wings of Desire

Wim Wenders
Peter Handke


From the outside, starlet Olivia Hammond has it all—fame, fortune and a Hollywood hunk boyfriend. No one suspects her rising self-doubts and anxieties. In order to escape the realities of her chaotic world, she dives into an Oscar quality role of a young woman trapped in the horrors of postwar Berlin. It is here that Olivia feels most comfortable.

Her real and fictional lives collide when the director casts Dimitri Malakhov, a Russian porn star, as her costar. She immediately fears her image and reputation will be tainted. Personally and professionally, she must face what frightens her most—exposing herself, her fears, her imperfections and her desires to the world.

The experience of filming the movie with Dimitri and being on location in Berlin destroys her prejudices and judgments. It shatters all her illusions and perceptions. When liberated from her own confines, her life and love truly shine.

Manchmal das Herz muss zerstört werden, um zu heilen.

Sometimes the heart needs to be broken in order to heal.


So many pictures,  so many scenes

Still can’t understand what it means

I look at my face everyday I arise

And proceed to adorn my daily disguise

The soul that once shined

No longer appears

It’s lost somewhere

In a world full of tears.

I’ve wandered around place to place

Trapped inside my invisible space

How do we connect with another

When it’s our own heart we smother

The soul that once shined

Desires to be seen

Wanting to wade through

The clutter in between.

It only takes a moment for all to shatter

Picking up the pieces doesn’t really matter

The worst has come to fate

No one else can ever relate

Our wounds exposed like an open sore

For all others’ salt to pour

Author Bio

MeInspiration comes from watching way too much Monty Python. The abstract and the absurd way of looking at normal life, not only offers humor, but questions many problems in society in a light-hearted manner. If we can laugh at ourselves, if we can laugh at life, problems do not seem quite so difficult to tackle.  In fact, problems are not as complicated as they seem; everything is very simple. If you can laugh at it, write about it and read about it, most likely one would think about it.

Author Jennifer Ott has written several satire fiction, Wild Horses, The Tourist and two non-fiction books Love and Handicapping and Ooh Baby Compound Me! She recently published, Serenidipidus and Edge of Civilization. She also is the host of the SuperJenius Internet Radio show on Artist First radio Network.

Jennifer Ott lives in Long Beach, California, enjoys the sun, the sand, the surf and lots of Mexican food.
