The Pennymores and the Curse of the Invisible Quill Book Excerpt:

This “supernatural adventure story, filled with atmosphere, twists, the sublime and dripping with heart” (NY Weekly)—about a young girl whose beliefs about magic are shattered when her brother vanishes in the middle of the night—is perfect for fans of Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Narnia, & The School of Good & Evil. Inspired from a bedtime story created by Eric and daughters Quinn and Parker, the Pennymores begins with a simple premise: what would the world look like if writing were forbidden. How would we communicate, how would we engage, how would we transact, how would we rule, and how would we remember? And what happens when a group of 11-year olds began to question this idea and push against a roving mob bent on preventing writing from ever returning? The Plumes, a secret writing society created by Parker Pennymore, vows to teach her classmates the power of writing and along the way uncovers a world of magic writers hidden before their eyes. It's an adventure story, a story of family, and a fantastical journey of whimsy, imagination, and creativity that all happens with the magical stroke of a quill. The setting was first inspired by Malala Yousafzai and her mission to help more than 120 million girls around the world who are not able to attend school. Proceeds of the book's sales will benefit the Malala Foundation in an effort to ensure writing is never forbidden, banned, outlawed, or stopped -- letting the magical power of writing live free. There's magical creativity in the book that could only come from the contribution of children's minds, and our story was created just as both Percy Jackson and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy began as bedtime stories by Rick Riordan and JRR Tolkien, respectively. Inside this world, you'll meet all varieties of creatures from talking animals, elves, dwarves, wizards, witches, and much more as you go deep inside a unique world built around the written word.

From Hobbits to Hollywood Book Excerpt:

Peter Jackson's film version of The Lord of the Rings (2001-2003) is the grandest achievement of 21st century cinema so far. But it is also linked to topical and social concerns including war, terrorism, and cultural imperialism. Its style, symbols, narrative, and structure seem always already linked to politics, cultural definition, problems of cinematic style, and the elemenal mythologies that most profoundly capture our imaginations.From Hobbits to Hollywood: Essays on Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings treats Jackson's trilogy as having two conditions of existence: an aesthetic and a political. Like other cultural artefacts, it leads a double life asobjet d'art and public statement about the world, so that nothing in it is ever just cinematically beautiful or tasteful, and nothing is ever just a message or an opinion.Written by leading scholars in the study of cinema and cultureFrom Hobbits to Hollywood gives Jackson's trilogy the fullest scholarly interrogation to date. Ranging from interpretations ofThe Lord of the Rings' ideological and philosophical implications, through discussions of its changing fandoms and its incorporation into the Hollywood industry of stars, technology, genre, and merchandising, to considerations of CGI effects, acting, architecture and style, the essays contained here open a new vista of criticism and light, for ardent fans of J.R.R. Tolkien, followers of Jackson, and all those who yearn for a deeper appreciation of cinema and its relation to culture.
