Biography:   I figured after nearly a year, I'm no longer a "new convert" and high time to re-edit my profile. Though I still maintain that I write as a hobby and not a professional of any sort. I love my hobby, and I also love to read the many different tales other authors have written on my favorite hobbits. I have a list of favorites, but it is by no means a complete list. There are so many talented writers with such creative muses! Who am I? My "real" name is Theresa, and I live in Ohio. I read Lord Of The Rings for the first time in 1988 and immediately clicked with the characters of Pippin and Merry (yes, I have a typo in my pen name :P). It was a bad night for typing. Anyway, a big Thank You to everyone who has stopped to read a tale or two from my little library--and double so for taking the time to leave a response. Have a wonderful day. :-)
