Hello everyone. If you haven't guessed by now I have a passion for words and have twelve books published...all thanks to Lulu, Kindle, Smashwords and other ebook sites, much hard work and sleepless nights.

My eldest daughter has flown the nest and is married to a man who doesn't mind his mother-in-law though my son is still fluffing his feathers.

My middle child is off on a mysterious adventure, the like of which I can only guess...and tried to do so in my first book, Gone.

I love to read and am looking for ways to double time so to indulge in the mysterious and wonderful and delicious and strange...my favourite kind of story.

Writing is my passion, though I enjoy creating handcrafted cards, jewellery making, scrapbooking and dabbling in encaustic art whenever I can.

Oh yes, I used to teach or mark exam papers but now concentrate on writing and enjoying my new life, which materialised, as if by a miracle. Though still dislike all those necessary domestic chores that would, for me, be included in the Rings of Hell!

That's it. Thank you to anyone who reads my books...enjoy the flight!

FYI - all my books are available as Kindle editions as well as paperbacks and will soon all be on Smashwords.

Smashwords book reviews by Julie Elizabeth Powell

  • The Dancer's Spell on May 06, 2011

    An unusual story, intelligently written, forming a historical dramatic sense of the real and unreal, with a cast of believable and exotic characters. A satisfying read. Julie Elizabeth Powell, author of Gone, Slings & Arrows, The Star Realm, Invasion, Knowing Jack and A Murderer's Heart
  • Fusion on July 10, 2011

    This is another wonderful collection of delightful stories from Maria Savva, all with twists and turns and surprising endings. I thoroughly enjoyed the book with its wealth of ‘easy to know’ characters, which bring to life these simple yet clever ideas. It’s amazing how a story can evolve from the tiniest spark, and Maria shows her genius again and again. I particularly liked The Legacy and The Time Machine, where hopes and wishes are successfully explored. Highly recommended.
  • The Dream on July 20, 2011

    I was intrigued from the start of this story, as it began with a delicious mystery, which continued to develop and then unfold with pleasing affect. A clever tale, where its heroine, believable and likeable, helps the reader relate and sympathise with many of the ‘love’ issues, yet pins us to our seats wondering what will happen next. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and would recommend it to those who are fascinated by that ‘something extra’, that something which allows the imagination to wander where enigma is the watchword. Julie Elizabeth Powell, author of Gone, Slings & Arrows, The Star Realm, Invasion, Knowing Jack, A Murderer's Heart and Of Sound Mind
  • The Guest on Oct. 14, 2012
    (no rating)
    I found The Guest to be rich in description and enough mystery to keep me reading. I don't give spoilers, but will say that this short story left me wanting to find out more. Very good. Julie Elizabeth Powell
  • Cave of Discovery on Dec. 12, 2012
    (no rating)
    I do love books that go straight into action. Cave of Discovery had good, clear description and was an enjoyable read. It had an intriguing, great start – everyone likes the idea of treasure. Liked the use of dialogue to move the story forward, a great tool I use myself.

  • The World Beyond the Door on Dec. 12, 2012

    The World Beyond the Door by Margaret and Steven Larson Another Winner! Fabulous description from the first, it really drew me forward. I could just imagine that house, the path, the oak and of course the mystery, the secrets…the magic.
  • The Dancer's Spell on Feb. 02, 2015

    An unusual story, intelligently written, forming a historical dramatic sense of the real and unreal, with a cast of believable and exotic characters. A satisfying read.
  • When Season's Change The Journey Begins Book I The Season Series on Feb. 04, 2015

    I was asked to read this book and found it to be thought provoking even though it does need some work. I liked the way it changed characters so to add depth to the story to make an intriguing read. It's difficult to say too much, as I don't give spoilers, but it's worth a look.
  • The Doormaster's Apprentice on Feb. 06, 2015

    This was an extremely enjoyable read! I loved the idea of magical doors used to visit other places, and linking items to make for easier living, e.g. being able to carry a small basket, where items are placed then transported to a bigger, more cumbersome basket - clever! A Doormaster feels like an original thought, and by using an apprentice for the adventures, further adds to the authentic ring and fun. This was a well-written fantasy tale, filled with magic, enchantment and wonderfully detailed and realistic characters - as well as the fight for good against evil. Highly recommended.
  • Probable Impossibilities on March 22, 2015

    I was given this book for review and enjoyed it. The story had many twists and turns and even a story within a story...clever! I liked the way it wasn't predictable, the believable characters and the mystery and surprises. It was well written and a very good read.
