Author has written 24 stories for Lord of the Rings.
I have been writing since Christmas of 2002, when I took an original novel idea I had been mulling over for years and set it in Tolkien's world (May the Valar Protect Them). While my writing has improved since then, that story will always be special to me.
The more I read of Tolkien, the more I love his world and his worldview. The movies provided images of costumes and places that helped bring Middle-earth to life, but my first love will always be the books. Elrond is my favorite character, the only one to appear in The Silmarillion, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. I especially love writing Elrond and Celebrian together. I primarily write book-verse gap-fillers for Tolkien's works. I write elves the most, for their long lives leave so much room for speculation. I also like to write about Aragorn, the epitome of perseverance. Of the hobbits, I love Bilbo the most. Frodo is much more tragic, and my interest in him lies post-quest.
A Fire Long Kindled: A three chapter story showing the passion and humor of Elrond and Celebrian's courtship, wedding and decision to conceive a child.
Hunting: My Imladris and Mirkwood series collide in this story set just prior to Celebrian's capture and when Legolas is 9 years old (in my version of Tolkien's world).
May the Valar Protect Them: The amazing story of Legolas's birth and first two years
Refuge: My first attempt at writing. I still wish to write about Frodo's choice to take Arwen's gift and sail. This is not very good, but perhaps one day I'll try again.
Of Greater Worth: Set in the First Age, Celeborn learns of the treachery of the Noldor, and wonders what other secrets Galadriel might be withholding from him.
Stories set in Daw's world: "First Celebrations", "Ithilden's Begetting Day", "Eilian's Begetting Day", and "Be Careful What you ask for" were all written as birthday gifts to Daw the Minstrel, a dear friend I would never have known were it not for fanfiction. These stories can be found at Stories of Arda.
Thank you to all who have read. I am grateful that people like to read the stories as much as I like to write them.
My stories are also published at Stories of Arda.
