Biography:   I fell in love with Sam and Frodo back in the seventies, and Lord of the Rings was a bedtime story for our six kids, lo these many years. But the movies have made Middle Earth real to me in a whole new way, and started me writing my own additions to the story. I was tickled to death when I found other people are as obsessed as I am and also writing new adventures and insights into Middle Earth -- long live fan fiction!

Frodo's birthday has come again, for the fifth time since Bilbo went away. Frodo is happy as Master of Bag End, enjoying his inheritance. Or he should be happy. He has every reason to be happy. But he's restless, discontented - and an autumn camping trip with his cousins seems like the perfect cure. But not with Sam! Sam has been a bit too helpful - Frodo is feeling smothered as well as restless, and the young gardener is left behind, much to his dismay.
