From Amazon reviews of Starring on Bay Street -
"I treated myself to a little down time in the sun after work yesterday and started reading "Starring on Bay Street"!!! It is amazing! What powerful literary techniques and an engaging story line and I'm only on the third chapter!!!" - Linda B.
"A wonderful story, full of vivid characters and quirky drama. Also, completely hilarious. As someone who has done community theatre I found a lot of what she writes about so true, and so funny. But don't think that it's only entertaining to those who have acted. It's a story that should be universally enjoyed. There is great humanity here, as the director struggles with existential angst about her role as director of a small theatre, how she is using her talent, and her purpose in life. Heartwarming and hilarious, I highly recommend a warm cup of tea and a quiet place to enjoy this book. You won't be able to put it down!"

"Jan Ewen has written a must read for any "regular joe" adult who has the deep (possibly never consciously admitted) desire to perform. This book brings the community theatre experience to life for anyone who summons the courage to JUST DO IT! Very enjoyable reading for those of us who have participated in local theatre....entertaining, insightful, and encouraging for those who have not, but would like to. Read it!"

"A fantastic read! It's one of those books you simply can't put down.
Artfully descriptive. The cast of characters feel familiar to someone you may know. Starring on Bay Street leaves you wanting more. I can't wait for the sequel!"

From Amazon reviews of Fractured Fairy Tales for Student Actors -
"I was looking for a theme and ideas for our annual Rotary Show. This certainly met that need - in fact I will donate the book to our local high school for their drama department following our show. The scripts, characters, props, and dialogue are all there - all you need to do is add your own flair and execute." Amazon Review
