WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT DUAL VISIONS
Wow… this is a hard book to put down! In a few short pages, I already felt I knew the Davidson clan. I wonder if Jill is a Davidson, as her authoring skills are out of this world. Maybe she is writing about something that may be revealed soon. I felt as if the story is entirely a plausible possibility. I can see a movie series or movie coming from this. (The 4400 has sort of done that but her story approaches from another angle that aliens quite likely would adopt.) Great work Jill, just remember us little people when you are a world famous author.

“Daul Visions” is an incredibly captivating read. The author is creative and passionate which makes this story on a unique family drama, impossible to put down. Completely warping your mind and reopening it to a brilliant imagination I found myself enthralled with each new chapter and I anticipate more from this amazing author. Chrissy
This lady said to a fellow Dual Visions buyer who mentioned to me that the book was on her bedside table and she hadn’t read it yet, ‘Do read it, it’s well worth it, and I can’t wait to read Jill’s next book.’
Don’t forget my other book, collaborative book of short stories for children..

BOOK REVIEW BY SUZANNE GERVEY
The Ten Penners are a company of friends in that traditional bond between writers as they share and celebrate their work. The Ten Penners’ second collection of stories, novellas and poems titled ‘FAN-TAS-TIC-AL TALES’ is a testament to their friendship and the fantastical.
Many of the stories are underpinned by magical journeys with witches, dragons, ghosts, aliens and the oddities and perceptions of kids in their worlds. The writing is in general humorous and appealing, ending with happy resolutions. At times the endings reflect values such as in Kate Pepper’s ‘Zelda the Witch’ where there’s acceptance of what you look like, Jill Smith’s ‘Horrible Hilda’ that when kids are kind life becomes happier and Lorraine Blomberg’s story of teamwork and girls’ friendship.
The writing ranges from the enjoyable novella ‘Grandma ‘J’ by Yvette Coutts where ordinary Grandma has a secret inherited by her ordinary grandson Jack that is extraordinary, to Marion Martineer’s funny story about magical warts that fly, to Maria O’Donnell’s ghost story where Mrs Mulligrubs investigates the haunted lighthouse to Jill Ford’s stories of Petal the dragon who jumped from the page of a book into a little girl’s imaginary life.
Targeted at the 8 to 12 year age group.
