In keeping with tradition, I decided to write another brief blog post in honour of Peter Jackson’s birthday.
Last year I wrote a short letter dedicated to the director, praising his work and thanking him for introducing me to cinema and Middle-earth.
In this quick post, I’d like to talk about the individual himself. Continue reading “Raising a cup of tea to Peter Jackson”
A big thanks to Olga from Middle-Earth Reflections and Lisa from Tolkien Read Through who have nominated me for this cool award – the Sunshine Blogger Award.

That is exactly what I have done.

So today I decided to organise a particular drawer that had been bugging me for a while.
It took a lot of time to try and pull open, it being wedged and stuck due to the cluttered contents inside. It took even more time to sift through all the papers and faded scraps of notes I couldn’t remember ever having read or, let alone, written. Continue reading “My first ever poem about ‘The Hobbit’ (and it’s as bad as you’d imagine)”
A new short story has been posted on the The Trials of Sherlock Holmes blog.
You can now read a brand new tale: ‘The Adventure of the Noxious Intruder‘.
