This year’s Isle of Wight Literary Festival was the best ever. A big thank you to all the volunteers and organisers who gave their time to make it happen.
I loved every second of it. the audience at my show – A Woman’s Wit, Wisdom and Pratfalls – was wonderful, warm and welcoming. We had a great time, laughing and sharing the emotional hiccups that pull us up sharp everyday of our lives.
If you missed it, here’s a flavour of what it’s all about. See you next year!

Chatting to Isle of Wight Radio’s Matt White about the Isle of Wight Literary Festival 2015.
Talking books to the lovely Ian mac at Vectis Radio – always a pleasure.
Honoured to stop-over at Janelle Kahele’s site today. I enjoyed our chat and appreciated her taking time out to review my thrillers: The Killing of Mummy’s Boy and Guilt. Those 5* and 4* ratings lit up my day!
Nothing perks an author up more than spotting a shiny new review. Thank you to those who read and share their thoughts. It’s a labour of love and much appreciated. Keep turning those pages!
‘I wish more people would discover Joan Ellis. She is a brilliant author.’

‘Dark, haunting and an extremely powerful read, Joan’s writing talents don’t end with light-hearted female fiction.’
