Review from Mary R. Lanni

Recently I was fortunate enough to have my book, Evertrue, reviewed by Mary R. Lanni, a librarian and professional Kidlit Book Reviewer with a focus on stories written for kids, tweens, and teens. Her goal is to help parents, librarians, and teachers get great stories in front of their children. For anyone interested in child development, Mary is the co-author of Early Learning Through Play: Library Programming for Diverse Communities, which reveals how play is crucial to reading and writing success. You can visit her website to read some of her reviews, at, plus read her review of Evertrue here on Goodreads, and here on Mary’s blog. She describes Evertrue as;

Gripping from the first moments, the writing in this book is immediately accessible and entertaining, keeping readers turning pages to discover what happens next.

Meanwhile, work on my latest story continues, and hopefully I will soon have more updates to let you know how things are going. 2021 was another year of highs and lows, the highlight of which was undoubtedly having Evertrue narrated and brought out in audiobook. Hearing my story brought to life by the amazing Emma Stansfield was such a joyous moment for me. As the year draws to a close, I want to take this opportunity to thank my readers for their ongoing support, encouragement and enthusiasm [and to my long suffering family] and to wish you all a wonderful new year.

Hi, I’m Jill, a writer and teacher living in the UK, usually behind a desk but sometimes on a sofa with a book or a film. I began writing at around age three, legibly by five, although I didn’t write any stories until I was older. Aged eleven, I began writing children’s fiction, mostly middle-grade fantasy and I’m still doing it to this day. I have had stories published online and in My Weekly magazine. The best bit about writing is when ideas pop into your head (from the writing fairy presumably?) and everything starts clipping together like a jigsaw puzzle. The worst bit? When you start to get the feeling there's a piece missing from the box...
