Biography:   I am German by birth, Scottish by marriage, with two small children. I work as a special needs teacher in a big comprehensive school in Stirling. Liberal Christian, moderate feminist, wannabe eco-warrior... My first venture into fan fiction was through Discworld, and that is still where my focus lies, but I also enjoy writing for Lord Of The Rings.
