Biography:   I am English and have enjoyed writing since childhood.I first began writing poems at the age of seven. I have had a story published in "Forget me Nots From the front Porch" and an article published in a magazine

I endeavour to reply to all signed in readers.

I intend to post news about delays ect and background information on my LJ,so please bookmark that if you are interested.You are welcome to friend me if you have an account.


My LOTR Stories are intended as a series, in which the characters remember and refer to events in previous stories .Although each can be read on its own,their chronological order is

The Slave of the Ring

First Meeting

Facing the Darkness

The Hidden Days of Healing

A New Beginning

The White Tree

Shadow and Thought

Burden of Guilt

Web of Treason

A Time to Reap

At the Rising of the Moon


I only intended to write one LOTR story but the amazing response and the encouragement of my kind reviewers has decided me to keep writing.
