Brittany Hood
Book Blogger

Brittany Hood works as a project administrator by day and an avid book reader by night. She created her book blog Brittany’s Pages in 2017 in order to channel her obsession for books. Brittany lives on the East Coast of the US with her husband and 3 rambunctious beagles.

Brittany’s reviewing style focuses much on the human factor, characters and emotions. She glides through the plot-lines, with a an enthusiastic tone, as much as the novel can extrapolate from her. She mainly enjoys fiction; Historical and literary being her favourites. 2017 was a big year for Brittany as she branched out into new and un-scouted genres. She welcomes all genres and enjoys exploring what the literary world has to offer.

All books are unique and I enjoy exploring what the author has to say.”

Joni Dee
Thriller Author

Joni Dee is the author of And the Wolf Shall Dwell, his debut political-spy thriller. His writing style is inspired by the great masters of imagery such as Hemingway and Clavell, while his gripping story lines have taken after giants such as le Carré, Greene and Derek Raymond. He bases his novels loosely on his vast knowledge of the intelligence world. He lives in London, UK, with his wife and two children.

Joni tends to be prosaic in his reviews, and often looks for similarities between writing styles. He is more lenient towards debut novels, but expects to be carried away with what he is reading. He is an English language enthusiast, and a sucker for good imagery.

I prefer mysteries and thrillers, but I’ll read general fiction and the occasional Sci-Fi. I don’t have any particulars ‘don’ts’ but I stray away from fantasy, since nobody can top Zelazny for me.”

Julia Wilson
Book Blogger

Julia describes herself as “a bookaholic”. For as long as she can remember she has loved books. She believes that we owe it to authors to review every book we read. She suffers from M.E since 2010 and had to stop working as a teaching assistant for special needs in 2015, she then developed fibromyalgia but the good news is… “I have much more time to read!”. Julia is running her book blog Christian Bookaholic (set by her son Michael) so she could share her reviews. She is also a crazy cat lady and has five adorable cats. She had smashed her Goodreads target of 300 books in 2017!

Julia’s tips for her reviewing style: She never gives away the plot; She is kind; She picks out the main themes; She uses quotes from the novel; She gives her opinion on the characters; She gives her overall opinion on the book.

My favourite genre is Christian fiction as there is nothing in it to offend. I enjoy mass market too: mysteries, thrillers, romance, Amish, suspense, detective, WWI, WWII, Holocaust, cat books… quite a wide range. I prefer the action set from 1850 onwards. And I will read the occasional nonfiction book too.”

Dale E. Lehman
Thriller Author

He is the author of the Howard County Mysteries series (The Fibonacci Murders, True Death, Ice on the Bay).

With his wife Kathleen he owns and operates One Voice Press and Serpent Cliff. They have five children, five grandchildren, and two feisty cats.

In his reviews, Dale gives a summary of the work, then states what he liked about the work and what he disliked. He rates a work on story and writing, and gives an overall rating that takes both into account. He tends to be more lenient with debut novels by indie writers. His goal is to encourage writers while offering constructive criticism that can help them make their next book even better.

I prefer Mystery, Science Fiction and Fantasy. I don’t do Romance, Zombies, Vampires, or Romantic Zombie Vampires.”

Rodney Strong
Fiction Author

Rodney lives in Porirua, New Zealand, with his wife, two children, and two cats. In 2016 he quit his full time job to focus on writing and doing all child related activities, which these days are mainly to make sure his kids get to where they need to go on time, clothed, and fed. In 2017 he self-published his first novel, Troy’s Possibilities. His next standalone book will hopefully be out in the first quarter of 2018.

Having published a book, Rodney is fully aware of the hard work that has gone into anyone getting a book out there.  For a review he likes to focus on some positives, but he also thinks it’s important to point out where he feels things didn’t quite work. He firmly believes that constructive feedback is much more beneficial for writers as it allows them to look at what they might need to improve on the next project. He will usually give a quick overview of the story, but not all the time, as he thinks that’s the sort of thing people can read the back of the book for, so he prefers to focus on his reaction to the story.

I read all sorts of books, but generally read thrillers, dramas, and fantasy as a rule.”
