Biography:   Greetings! I'm not certain why you are reading my profile, but since you are, I might as well make the best of your time and tell you something useful. Or interesting. Maybe even both. And I'm going to work from the assumption that you're reading this profile for one of two reasons. One: You're trying to determine if my work is worth reading. Two: You've read my work and you're wondering just what goes on in my head. So let's see if I can answer both.

I write LotR fanfiction because I can't get the characters out of my head and the only way to quiet them for any period of time is to write their stories down on paper. Or on the computer. The primary characters in my head that clamor for attention are Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli. But there are certainly others. Faramir is prominent, as are Elladan and Elrohir. The hobbits will slip in from time to time, and Eomer and Eowyn are not to be underestimated. Celeborn and Thranduil will periodically gang up on me while Imrahil and Boromir take a more subtle (but hardly less effective) approach. However, the key players seem to be Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli, so at least one of the Three Hunters will play a prominent role in many of the stories.

As for what kind of stories I write, humor is important to me. As a way of life, I try to look for humor in every situation, and that trickles into the stories. But I also try to find a balance where angst is not overpowered by light-heartedness. And angst is another key ingredient, because I enjoy seeing how characters react to extreme situations. Action and adventure gets my blood pumping, and drama is a wonderful tool for character introspection. In short, you're likely to see just about anything from me. But humor and dark angst are prominent.

And that is essentially me as a writer of LotR fanfiction. I hope you enjoy the stories and come back for more. And remember to leave a review if you feel so motivated. They're really the only form of payment I get, aside from my own satisfaction and peace of mind.
