Nightdew...

Age: old enough to know better but young enough to get away with it.

Location: somewhere in the North of England...

Some of my top reads of the last few years (I mean I read them in the last few years - that's not necessarily when they were written):

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell; Baudolino; The Princess Bride; I Capture the Castle; the Thursday Next books; everything Juliet Marillier has ever written (just about!); Phantastes (19th century fantasy classic); the Dalemark books; Tales of the Otori; The Book Thief; and the incomparable Fushigi Yugi (which I'm still in the middle volumes of, so no spoilers!!)

Some of my all-time favourites:

Narnia; Lord of the Rings; Grimms Fairy Tales; lots of medieval romances and 19th century novels; the Iliad and the Metamorphoses; and everything I did for my A-Levels, including the very funny Gulliver's Travels.

Some of my top viewings in the last few years:

Howl's Moving Castle (and consequently a heck of a lot more stuff by Studio Ghibli esp. Castle in the Sky and Whisper of the Heart); House of Flying Daggers; Kingdom of Heaven; Tristan & Isolde; The Illusionist; Stardust; and not forgetting Heroes and Torchwood.

Some of my all-time favourites:

Lord of the Rings; Dead Poets Society; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; The Wizard of Oz; Beauty and the Beast (the Disney film and the TV show) and of course Sharpe.

I write my own original stories as well, so if you really like me, check out my website and read some. You could get to know me before I'm famous (!) It's called Hidden Grove (readers of The Handmaid of Gondor will find out why) and has song lyrics and pictures on it too. I love to get new readers!
