My mum likes a good crime drama so last year we introduced her to 'Castle' and now she's hooked. So for my mum's birthday this week I got her a couple of the Castle novels. For those of you who don't watch (why not?), Castle (played by Nathan Fillion) is a writer who consults with the NYPD as research for his novels. Back in the real world, a series of books have been released to tie-in to the series, published under the name Rishard Castle, with Nathan Fillion's picture and the character's details in the 'about the author' section. Turns out this is all too confusing for my mum. After a very long phone call we've finally managed to establish that Richard Castle is not a real person who looks freakish similar to Nathan Fillion, Nathan Fillion is a real person but doesn't write books (as far as I know...), 'Castle' is not based on a true story, and I don't know who really wrote the books. Sigh. Next year I'm going to get her something much less confusing - it'll be easier for everyone. Perhaps something with her birth stone, peridot, like these beautiful items...
