Author has written 18 stories for Lord of the Rings.
My fan fiction writing is confined to the works of Tolkien, and my favorite characters to write are Aragorn (particularly as Elessar), Gilraen, and various original characters. Generally, I write short stories and vignettes although I do dabble in poetry from time to time. Vignettes, however, are my all-time favorite type of fan fiction to write (and read) because they capture those sacred slices of time in a character's life and mind.

One of my strange habits as a writer is that of almost always (and unintentionally) including some form of the word "silent" (eg "silence," "silently," etc) and the word "shadow" in my works. But perhpas my most peculiar writing quirk is that I almost always write the last line of a story first, often months before I have a premise for the story itself. I keep a list of my last lines and let them brew in my mind; eventually, some of them actually find a home in a story.

My other interests include African-American literature, historical fiction, rhetorical theory, pugs (of course!), health and nutrition, and spinning (aka indoor cycling). These things keep me sane.

A favorite quote:

"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone. "It means just what I choose it to mean - neither more or less."
"The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."
"The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master - that's all."

—Lewis Carroll 1832 - 1898

Works in Progress

Tales of the Innkeeper: A simple innkeeper (OC) plays host to King Elessar. An ongoing series of vignettes in which a simple innkeeper (OC) plays host to King Elessar. NOMINATED MEFA 2007, BEST DRAMA: INCOMPLETE. Although the Innkeeper vignettes began as entirely separate entities, the series took on a life of its own, and the vignettes subsequently became chapters of a larger work. Tales of the Innkeeper, therefore, is now not only a collection of vignettes and ficlets but also a WIP short story.
