Author has written 8 stories for Lord of the Rings.

I'm a huge Lord of the Rings fan, reading the trilogy at least once a year ever since I was in elementary school. Tolkien's writing and grasp of language continues to inspire and amaze me.

I enjoy both reading and writing fanfiction, largely because of the creativity and freedom that it presents to authors.

My current projects are Kingsfoil (nearing completion) AND I just started a *Special Edition* of Building Ithilien to celebrate the original fic's 15th anniversary. The new version will be told completely in 1st person Legolas POV and will have some new scenes as well as a few bonus scenes that never made it into the original.

My Stories:

Building Ithilien: The story of Legolas' journey to Ithilien after the War of the Ring. In this story, I really wanted to explore Legolas' character as he struggles with the mantle of leadership. When I started writing this story, I never imagined all of the amazing responses that I would have, nor the fact that it would take me eight years to finish. I wanted to try my hand at creating a real sense of place in Middle Earth through my characters' experiences and my own study of Tolkien's style and writing.

Best Laid Plans: This little one-shot was written right after I finished Building Ithilien as a way of celebrating the end of, what I felt was a great accomplishment, but I was also feeling a little withdrawal symptoms of not having anything else to write.

Wanderlust: I wanted to try a different characterization of my favorite elf prince. What if he wasn't the amazing confident warrior of LOTR? What if instead he was sort of dorky and insecure?

Kingsfoil: Thranduil's not afraid to do whatever necessary to push back the darkness threatening his forest. The hands of the king have the power to heal, but will it be enough to save his kingdom...and himself?

Because it Was Real: I wrote this after watching Battle of the Five Armies and feeling totally depressed about the end of an era. Wonder what happens when Legolas goes looking for that mysterious man called "Strider?" A holiday one-shot about friendship.

Consider the Elven Heart: I wrote this story in response to the achingly beautiful short essay "Joyas Voladoras" by Brian Doyle. He considers the amazing science of hummingbirds' hearts while I take a more fanciful route and contemplate what keeps an elven heart going.

But then again, Lindir never believed in anything but music, Elrond never thought he would be Master of Rivendell twice, and Legolas never expected to like Instagram quite this much.
