Author has written 3 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.
My current story Wanderlust features Legolas, one of my favorite characters from LOTR. Even before the movies, he intrigued me as a character for many different reasons. He's not just a static character; like most of the Fellowship, the quest changes him irrevocably. (I love his friendship with Gimli!) I chose his story to write, because his story is largely unwritten. Tolkien only gives us snatches of information about what becomes of Legolas after the destruction of the Ring. Wanderlust tells the story of how Legolas became the warrior that he is in LOTR.
I enjoy both reading and writing fanfiction, largely because of the creativity and freedom that it presents to authors.
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: My newest story! 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?
