THE HOBBIT: Awesome trilogy from Peter Jackson!

The 2012-2014 movie versions of The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien are directed by the awesome Peter Jackson. In these movies, Jackson brings in portions of Tolkien's appendices, as well as an original character made especially for the screen play (Tauriel a female wood elf). The wonderful cast includes:

Cate Blanchett - Galadriel
Orlando Bloom - Legolas
Evangeline Lily - Tauriel
Luke Evans - Bard
Benedict Cumberbatch - voice of Smaug & the Necromancer
Manu Bennett - Azog
and many more great actors for the dwarves, elves, orcs and goblins!

The first part, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, came out December 14, 2012. The second part, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, December 13, 2013, and the third, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (the title having previously been "The Hobbit: There and Back Again") December 17, 2014. SO GREAT!

I love the music in THE HOBBIT, especially "Song of the Lonely Mountain" performed by Neil Finn. Here is the song performed by two talented groups:
-A female vocalist (,
-The group "str8voices" (


If you enjoy music and medieval stories, here are links to the book trailers and music for my medieval romantic fiction 

Official book trailer for SHADOWS OF VALOR:
The short video directed by Yelena Baykova features the original score that I composed for it, the two cover models (Paulina Baykova and Brady Knighton) featured on the cover of SHADOWS OF VALOR as Elsbeth and The Shadow, and the narration by Ashley N. Grant. The still shots depict scenes from the novel, and the scenery in the video gives the appearance of a painted background, perfect for a medieval story. I love it so much! So fun!
One Brave Knight ballad I wrote for Shadows of Valor:
