    The Hobbit started life as a spontaneous scribble in the margin of an exam paper that J.R.R. Tolkien was marking as a way of supplementing his academic salary. It grew in the early 1930s into a fully fledged adventure story, initially to entertain his own children and ultimately as a book that would entertain millions of readers in every corner of the world. For a hobbit who was reticent even to go out of his front door, Bilbo Baggins has travelled further and more widely than even Tolkien could have imagined.
    Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely travelling further than the pantry of his hobbit-hole in Bag End. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard, Gandalf, and a company of thirteen dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an unexpected journey 'there and back again'. They have a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon...

    To celebrate the film release of The Hobbit, we are giving you the chance to win heaps of Tolkien goodies. Answer the question below to be in with a chance to win. Competition ends Friday 14 December, midnight GMT.

    Our new competition gives you the chance to win a signed special edition of CompTIA A+ Certification All-in-one Exam Guide and a Stetson hat!

    IT technicians recognise this classic reference as the #1 resource and test preparation guide for CompTIA A+ certification. The Eighth Edition of Mike Meyers' bestseller covers the new 2012 exam topics and new performance-based exam questions.

    Enjoy the QA with the author and check out the competition right below. Ends Thursday November 29, midnight GMT.

    1) When did you first become interested in computers/what is your first memory of them?

    Believe it or not I was around back in the early 1980s when the CPM operating system popular. I built a system using an S-100 bus and dual 8" floppy drives.

    2) What makes your books different from other A+ titles on the market?

    Because I am first and foremost an instructor, my books are written to help me teach IT.

    3) What do you do when you're not writing?

    I don't understand this question! ;)

    4) What is your favourite book/author?

    I'm a huge history fan. Right now I'm enjoying Winston Churchill's memoirs.

    blog image5) You are known for your great writing, eccentricity and your Stetson - is there a particular reason why you wear a Stetson?

    I live in hot, sunny Houston, TX. It's either the Stetson or SPF50 on my bald head!

    6) Why do you think people should take the A+ exam?

    Because the A+ is the de facto method for someone in the IT industry to show the world they have the basic skills necessary to fix computers. It's how you get in the door in the computer business.

    7) How is the 8/e All-in-One different to its predecessor?

    It's fully updated to cover the new 220-801 and 220-802 A+ exams that came out just this month.
