Biography:  

I''m a 26-year-old girl from Austria. I''m totally obsessed with hobbits, especially Frodo. I have written some German stories but in May 2003, I decided to have a try in English as well. Now I''ve almost totally switched to English stories and am always trying to improve my style.

Disclaimer:
None of the places and characters are mine. I've merely borrowed them from Professor Tolkien.
