My Series

The Undying Friendship Series - Stories of friendship, humor, mystery, angst, adventure, even some romance. All stories in this series are in the same story arc, and often are sequels or prequels to other tales in the series (though not always). The common denominator is this series is the theme of friendship.

About me: I'm just a single mom who is in love with all things Tolkien, especially the Elves, and most especially, Glorfindel. My life has not been the same since I got on this roller coaster called Tolkien Fan Fiction in 2006. I have no desire to get off, so keep reading and writing!
