Author has written 7 stories for Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter.
Grandmother, Christian. My avatar/icon looks like I'd like to think I look. I know a fair amount of hard Sciences, including Genetics, Mycology, and Astronomy, so you had better get it right. Bad science makes me cringe.
LOTR nut; also The Last Unicorn, Narnia, mythology in general, original Star Trek, King Arthur, and Percy Jackson. I find I am more than fond of cats and dragons!
I do read Harry Potter. I was disappointed in HP VII, though I understand the literary format she used. I like HPSS mentor/parenting. I find I am making a pretty good collection of HP-being-raised-by-ANYONE-else (I even found one where the Whomping Willow protects him!)
I don't read slash or adult-rated. I despise horror, including the toothy/sparkly. I'm in here to relax.
I do adore humor. Any story winding up on my Favorites list is probably hilarious, skewed viewpoint, off-kilter, and / or unbelievably creative and well-written.
In addition to my working full time, my grandchildren are here every weekend - my daughter is very ill. I am either tightly scheduled or behind at all times. I don't know when I'll have time to add another story of my own, but I keep having these rabbits running through my mind. If I catch one, you'll see it.
Am currently working on a challenge, "His Life Now." This is my first long story, and it's slow going but NOT dead or abandoned. I do know where I'm trying to take it.
