Biography:   Just fell madly in love with Tolkien after seeing the Bakshi movie. Immediately bought the book and read it to the kids. Kept an eye out for the sequel... it never came. Read the Sil - then the movies came out and I began writing a little poetry... and then the Letters just flowed from my grief at a RW experience... and I was hooked on writing. And reading any and all LOTR fanfic that I can find. Still not sated after all these years! Now writing for the RW - one novel done and almost ready to send to publishers. Second novel coming along quite nicely. My Blog: http://nothingbutwriting.blogspot.com/

bullet Letters to Denethor Last Updated: 3/23/2011
This was inspired by Larner's exquisite work, In Empty Lands. It will be probably only three or four letters from disparate Middle-earth folk. Hope you enjoy! (Not 100% sure who all is going to write these letters, so the character listing will grow.)

bullet Elros' Gift Last Updated: 7/16/2010
A double drabble that has been haunting me. For now, it is complete. But one never knows. The Muse is known to be unsettling in her ways. Disclaimer: I do not usually write Elves. I hope this does not disappoint.

bullet My Sword Trembles - Book Three - 'My Sword' Series Last Updated: 2/15/2009
Complete at last!!! Chapter Forty-Nine and the Epilogue added. Watch for the sequel, My Sword Reigns, in the coming months! Parts one (My Sword Sings) and two (My Sword Weeps) of this AU are archived here at Stories of Arda. An AU tale of life for Faramir and his aunt and Regent, Indis. Continuation of the "My Sword" saga. It is really not necessary to read the other two books first, but it's a good read (IMHO) and not difficult.
