Author has written 7 stories for Lord of the Rings.
I've been a fan of "Lord of the Rings" for six years. My favorite stories involve Sam and Frodo and are usually slash-free. I like dark, angsty fics best, so that's usually what I write. I hope you enjoy my stories and I appreciate any input, whether it be good or bad.

01/28/03: I am sincerely sorry that it's taken me so long to post a new chapter of "The Straight Road." Unfortunately I've been both busy and a bit "blocked" on it. I've hit a certain point in the story where it's been difficult for me to find the right way to express the ideas that I want the piece to touch on. There WILL be two more chapters, though, and I have many pieces in the works, including a series about Frodo's childhood and life before LOTR.

Thank you all so much for the support that you've given me. It still amazes me that my writing has been able to touch so many people; I am truly humbled and honored by every bit of feedback I receive.
