DIMITY POWELL Children’s Author & Children’s Book Reviewer
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.”

”Each story captured my interest in the first paragraph so that I couldn’t put the book down until I’d finished. Thank you for fixing a smile to my face with Johnny’s adventures. My favourite stories are ‘Heroism or folly’ & ‘Unforgettable days’. They left me with ‘Goosebumps and a big smile’. Your stories are delightfully funny… Johnny is bound to catch the imaginations of young children everywhere.” – Pamela Parry

“So brave to use your own story as evidence …so clever to back up all of your opinions with confirmational interviews or valid affirmation … This story is what makes you a whole lot better than Naked Planet in its approach to taking the tourist by the hand… excellent.”– Stan Broadhurst, MBCS CITP Elena Ornig: ” The benefits of saving money and time would be the major thrill for the reader’s interest.” Twitter Facebook LinkedIn YouTube _________________________________________________ CANDICE LEMON-SCOTT Candice is an Australian author, editor and freelance writer.

Great read as usual, Joan. You are amazing! Love and Healthy Blessings…” – Natasha Jones, Psychic Medium, Self- Healing Facilitator, wife and mother of two.
“I have just finished reading your book “Confidence is Key” and I am so impressed. You have covered all of the important points of how confidence improves and enhances all facets of your life, and how you can be affected with low self-esteem if you are lacking in confidence. I especially liked reading your own story, and how easy it is for anyone to change their life by having confidence, and of course, how to get it! Your poems are really beautiful too. If you don’t have Joan’s book, then you really are missing out on a wealth of great information which quite possibly will turn your life around.” – Narelle Stratford, Psychologist, livelife2themax.com.au

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.

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.
