Author has written 6 stories for Lord of the Rings.

One of the Few and the Proud Orcmancers of the LOTR fandom, most of my fanfic stories involve two things: Uruk-hai, and the ladies who luv em. Apparently there was no psychiatric medication in Middle Earth... Or at my house.

I have two long stories, one complete, and one not. I have NO intention of abandoning anything, but I do write on various subjects. So if you see that something has gone untouched for a while, it's probably the case that my schizophrenic muse has me dancing to some other tune. No worries, I will return at some point. But here's the thing: like many writers, I live for feedback. So if there is something you like, or you want more of, please do review! Praise or concrit, it really doesn't matter, so long as it doesn't feel like I'm writing into a void. I answer all PM's, too.

Fair warning: I tackle dark stuff, so most of my work falls in, or brushes up against, a mature rating. But there is usually always a romance hiding in there SOMEWHERE. So grab a flashlight, gentle reader, and journey on...

Throwing damsels into the path of tortured goblins is hard work, but I have diverse interests, and other stories that you can read, if you should so choose. My first novel of Ancient Egypt is up on Amazon. The Last Heiress: A Novel of Tutankhamun's Queen follows the young wife of history's troubled golden boy, King Tut. Ankhesenamun isn't abducted by Uruk-hai, but sometimes she wishes she would be. It's not all opium-laced wine, blind harpists, and gilded gowns in Amarna-era Egypt. Married twice by age 12, Ankhesenamun's story is one of great tragedy but also deep and death-defying love.

And over on FictionPress, I am offending my future publisher by posting chapters of a work I am, for the moment, calling Abbadon. It's a WW2 story, about a German soldier who learns that, in his world, right is wrong and up is down. There IS romance lurking, but the characters have a hard road to walk before they find it. Which, to me, is more realistic anyway. In RL, nothing comes easy.

While it IS a war story, it's far more about the main character's spiritual evolution, than about guns and tanks. Which means, there is dramatic meat for ladies AND gents, but it isn't going to be gentle OR pretty. And if you've hung with me this far, you might like that. So check it out!

War Stories by helenamarkos reviews
The War of the Ring is a tale well documented by Men, but the orcs had their own tales to tell. A collection of one shots featuring the foot soldiers and underlings of the White Hand and the Red Eye. Set in the same universe as "Splint" and "The Black Heart."

Mushog's Ride, or Orcbrat Gets Zooped by Zoop reviews
With apologies to The Lauderdale for character theft - The Zoop drops a very special modern world gal on the cast of "Orc-brat" because they've been languishing in stasis for too damn long. Time to stir the pot, folks. Rated for the kind of extreme naughtiness you've come to expect from Orcs and their girlfriends. NOT A CONTINUATION OF ORC-BRAT. COMPLETE

The Captain's Mare by The Lauderdale reviews
This is one Orc's story of his time working the Mordor convoys. Not all of them saw battle, after all. Warnings: Orc-talk, four-letter words, and creepy content. Non-graphic.
