The Birdskin Shoes:

Joan Taylor-Rowan writes with great freshness and assurance...

I LOVED this book and it deserves every possible success.

Katie Hickman, Author of The Pindar Diamond and The Aviary Gate

Five by Five:

The collection as a whole has tendency towards fantasy and magical realism,... historical stories alongside Joan Taylor Rowan's (London Lies, Lover's Lies, Stations) acid humour and modern desperation. 

"Joan Taylor- Rowan’s ‘Bitter Sweet Like pomegranates’ is one of the finest short stories."Amazon review

Stories for Homes Vol 2: Never Knowingly

For me personally, there were five stand out stories...Never Knowingly by Joan Taylor-Rowan is such a charming and funny idea; that of living in a department store at Christmas. Lovely characters and dialogue. Amazon review
