Author has written 9 stories for Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Parodies and Spoofs.

"Works of imagination should be written in very plain language; the more purely imaginative they are the more necessary it is to be plain."

--Samuel Taylor Coleridge--

All characters and references are used purely in the spirit of fun. If I offend, I apologize.

Cheers, and much appreciation, from the author formerly known as Say la Vie.

20 May 2007: Of Song and Steel is my current work in progress, and Laurenke1 has graciously agreed to beta. If anyone else is interested in beta reading, I accept all offers (and will return the favour), especially if you are particularly strong on canon and Middle Earth history, since I want to tackle some relationships and characters I've never dealt with before and will need all the help I can get. I have a feeling this will be one of those series that gets updated in fits and starts, so please bear with me.
