Huzzah and Hooray, it’s Hobbit Day!


Joanna lives in Chicago with her husband, two cats, and extensive book collection. She spends her time alternately between various creative artistic pursuits and has a passion for wildlife and conservation. She still hasn’t decided what she’s going to be when she grows up, though she suspects she will probably be herself. Her debut novel, THREADWALKERS, will be released in October 2017 by 50/50 Press.

    Ah I just found this post, and I love it! LOTR was my first intro into geek world, also, so I totally identify with you, Joanna. My aunt gave me the trilogy around 8 or 9, and I’ve been watching the movies since then, too. I’ll have to actually celebrate Hobbit Day next year!
