Author has written 13 stories for Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter.
June 2011 update: Happy summer to those of you in the northern hemisphere. With the long days and myriad other distractions it is tough to keep the words flowing.
However. It has been pointed out to me that perhaps I could do with posting a clarification on this page. At the moment all the Lord of the Rings universe stories you see here do flow from each other. However because my mind tends to jump from place to place, I started with the first Shadow story, then quickly got distracted to explore some of the back stories (like Legolas meeting the twins in A Precious Find), and also the later White City ones I wrote first because I do love good political yarns that would rival the Tudors. There will therefore be gaps and probably references to past events which I have yet to tell or am not happy enough with the story to publish it. You just have to stay tuned and be a little more patient! Thanks again for all your support through the years.
November 2010 update: Updates have been completely slow in coming, for which I must apologise. I still love writing, and will keep on doing so as long as I still draw breath, but I love it and my characters too much to force it out. I am also writing a long piece in an alternate universe from the Shadow and Tales series, but keeping the focus on Legolas and Elrohir (who else?). I promise that will be out as soon as I am happy with it!
August 2009 update: It has been a while, and with some amount of surprise I noted that it will soon be 8 years since I first put pen to paper. Even with the last two years being short on updates I promise I am still on the constant lookout for inspiration and source material, and perhaps I needed the time to heed the sage advice I was once given: to give myself time to live before rushing headlong into things. I hope the result is a honing of my writing and more enjoyment all around. I look forward to sharing with you very soon.
My work includes what most people will call 'slash', and I've got no qualms about saying that I believe two men falling in love is the same as a woman and a man. And because I've been asked a few times: No, one does not have to actually have experienced something to write about it - it's called imagination.
Shards - (Harry Potter Fic) What if the 'fat oaf' is not as he seems? Seldom do we think much about this seemingly cardboardish character.

The Last Age of Elves series: tales of Elrohir and Legolas's relationship from the first moment of their meeting to before the Fellowship.
A Precious Find
Coming of Age
For What He Is Worth (Rated R) Slash.
The White City series: collection of stories mostly set in 4th Age Gondor.

Vengeance is Mine (Rated R) Slash.
A final Note: I've also been asked a few times if I take inspiration from another author's works. Prior to these comments, I had only been vaguely aware of them. To answer more specific questions, I had the idea of For What He is Worth while I was in a modern art/sculpture gallery in Stockholm and was struck by how much I hated anything that was new and not from the 'masters' when it came to art. Now that I've read some of them, I see why the impression has arisen, and am finding it near to impossible to not take influences on board! Ultimately, I don't want to sound defensive or serious about the whole matter, but what I do hope is that my works will be read independently as what they were meant to be when created. Thanks for reading.
Finally, this website's insane campaign against proper punctuation gets to me. A lot. What is the point of deleting asterisks when writers also use it to denote breaks in the prose?
