I truly enjoy your style of writing. You have a woderful way of describing surroundings and atmosphere so that I feel like I am transported to Middle Earth. Some of the geography is a bit beyond me, so I have decided to go and buy the LOTR books tomorrow.
Author's Response: Thanks, Ellenflower. My intent is to give my readers the impression that they're seeing each scene on the "movie screens" of their imaginations. The books I reference most often are Karen Fonstad's The Atlas of Middle Earth and Robert Foster's The Complete Guide to Middle Earth. You can obtain good used copies of these books at reasonable prices through Amazon.com
Summer is a bad time for me to write because I have so many projects to work on around my property. If I'm not working on stone walls or cutting firewood, I'm doing carpentry projects or rearing silk moth caterpillars. Hopefully, I'll have another chapter posted by the end of the month.
