In 2010 Jo began a series of workshops, Masterclasses in the Art of Auditioning. This is her first book"
"Makes a splendid job of debunking many of the mysteries in what, for many parents and children, is a very strange, unknown world - it's evidently written from the heart - excellent' The Stage 'Upbeat and informal - very accessible and readable - rather like being at one of Hawes's popular workshops - a book well worth reading by drama teachers' Teaching Drama 'A "must read" for all parents of aspiring performers. An all-encompassing, comprehensive, informative and intelligent guide. Brilliant!' Sylvia Young"
