Joanna wrote these three short stories as part of an online contest for the launch of Dan Brown’s thriller novel, Inferno. At the end she explains about her writing, the language, imagery and symbolism used.
Joanna writes really well and this is quality on the page. These three horror stories really pack a punch. A lot of work has gone into these short stories and the writing is rich in content, depth and language. Her writing style is top quality and the best way for me to describe it is to give a brief quote to illustrate her talent…
Simon had succumbed to his own tug of desire for influence far beyond his brother’s petty pleasures, but there were days when he still longed to lose himself in an orgy of flesh, and take intimacy to the realm of ritual.
...You don’t get this quality of writing in many short stories and Joanna has really raised the bar with her collection. I got a lot of pleasure from reading her three short stories. They are also great in length to read one within your 45 minute tachograph rest break. These stories are snappy, you can finish them and not have to drive for up to 4 hours 30 minutes before you can find out what happens next!
I was really impressed by these short stories and found them to be top class entertainment. I could find nothing wrong with them and they made me one very happy reader, so it’s 5 stars from me.

Top class entertainment.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 April 2016
I enjoyed these three short stories. I like the way they dovetail together and the dark themes.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 July 2016
I enjoyed these three short stories. I like the way they dovetail together and the dark themes. I particularly liked the last story. I think that world has a lot of potential to be developed. The stories are a little heavy on explaining themes in places, and occasionally I think the descriptions could have been sparser. I fee this would have propelled the plot along and leave more up to my imagination. Overall, well worth a read.

Bite sized and punchy!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 27 September 2014
I love short stories of any genre and wish more authors would pen them. Not having read any of the authors fiction before I didn't really have any expectations but was very impressed and quietly pleased. Its too easy to be dissapointed by a short. The stories link well and the author creates a detail rich atmosphere for the reader. From the start you actually want to finish the stories to find out what happened! The author has a very engaging style and I found myself running a mini-movie in my mind as I read. JF Penn has a new fan...
She knows her stuffReviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 April 2014
You wouldn't think these were short stories the way you are drawn into them so vividly and the atmosphere is powerfully written. You feel confident knowing that your in safe hands with this author as the themes are dark. These are a must read alongside her books. I really liked the first story and could see it developed further as a novel as your left with so many questions.Wonderful stuff. x

Very DifferentReviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 October 2017
These 3 short stories were very different to what I usually read, but I must say I enjoyed them. They were a free download, and I would definitely read this type of novel in the future, it was exciting had action and quite graphic.
