'Joolz ... often brilliant chronicler of life as lived by the less fortunate... School poetry was never like this.' Q Magazine.

'Adopting the shell - shocked fragmented personae of war veterans, bitter young mothers and delinquent drug addicts, Joolz throws a harsh chilling light on modern life...She is also an outrageously funny woman with a biting ridicule taken straight from everyday life.' Sounds Magazine.

'Joolz' work explores the tension between the comedy and tragedy of people's lives in a restrained and perceptive fashion. "People should be moved by art" she says.' Vancouver Sun.

'Hear "House Of Dreams", a live poem as accurate as they come and chuck your Susan Sontag in the bin.' City Limits
