Author has written 7 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 story Kingsfoil features Thranduil, a character whom I really learned to love writing while writing Wanderlust. He is sassy and a little bit difficult. Thranduil likes things his way and isn't afraid to toss the occasional dwarf in the dungeons. What interests me about Thranduil is that he is an incredibly strong, devoted leader, one who has been tasked with keeping his kingdom safe, even though it backs up to the cesspool that is Dol Guldur. Unlike the other elven realms in Middle Earth, Thranduil's realm remains unprotected by an elven ring of power, so it's pretty much up to Thranduil and his strength of will and leadership to keep his people safe. Kingsfoil tells the story of that time period during the War of the Ring that Sauron does attack Mirkwood, and how the Elvenking prevails. I think this story will probably be a little darker than Wanderlust, but perhaps not so dark as Building Ithilien

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.

Silence by LibbyWrites reviews
Amy lived in silence. Being profoundly deaf, this was easy to do and she liked it that way. She certainly had no intentions of getting mixed up in an adventure to save Middle Earth. So what should she do when she finds all her choices in the hands of characters from a book? Classic 10th walker and LegolasxOC but hopefully a little unpredictable.
