Question of the Day

I’m a very visual writer.  I can’t write what I don’t see in my head.  Consequently, in addition to reading a lot, I love to watch movies.  Name one of your favorite fantasy and/or romance movies.

The Lord of the Rings trilogy for sure. Not technically romance (though there is romance involved) but 100% fantasy and soooooooooooooooooooooooooo good in terms of special effects and whatnot. Easily a masterpiece trilogy in cinema, and always the first I think of, when talking about amazing visuals. AND the movies happen to be some of my favorites. Win!

Have a lovely evening!

Hard to narrow it down… Any historical for the romance (especially Jane Eyre and Great Expectations) then for fantasy, Stardust is always a fun fall back!
