DIMITY POWELL  Children’s Author & Children’s Book Reviewer PS: Who Stole Santa's Mail?

BUY from MORRIS PUBLISHING AUSTRALIA

Dimity Powell: “… is my first junior novel for children and featured in hundreds of Christmas stockings for the first time in 2012. It’s an action-packed, light-hearted Christmas mystery about disappearing mail, an evil elf, weird smells and the power and magic of believing. Sam and his jellybean gobbling best mate, Tobii, have got just weeks before Christmas to work out who or what is stealing Santa’s mail. Not only is Santa’s rep on line, so is Sam’s Christmas wish and…his little sister…What he needs is a Christmas miracle. What he’s got is a severe case of holly-rash.”

Owen Tilley

Owen Tilley came to poetry later in life. His first twenty-five years were spent building a career in finance. Creativity got the better of him when he received a present, a notebook, from a friend. Inside, it read; ‘be inspired’. And he has been ever since.

PRISM – AN ANTHOLOGY

A collection of poetry

 Recommended Retail Price: $22.95;

Published by Zeus Publications;

His poetry makes for a heartfelt, philosophical and thought-provoking read.

‘Prism – an anthology’ was created over the space of almost a year, when the poetic and creative took its hold on him.

Owen’s intention was to give the reader the opportunity to interpret his poetry in their own way, for their own benefit. It was also written with the thought that life, in all its forms, can be challenging.

Yet we are faced with the opportunity to either rise above the challenges we face or allow them to take over and control us.

“I know which I choose,” Owen says – a reason why he started putting pen to paper and poetry to the page.

Give me sweetest smile –

It costs nothing but gives much

I walk out in the thunder

In the beauty of  twilight.

 

It hits me that, at sundown,

When my place of home is ‘found’ –

The light comes in the

Darkness of the night.
