Author has written 13 stories for Lord of the Rings.
I live in Boise, Idaho USA and work for a travel agency, but am too busy to go anywhere! I have a degree in journalism, four cats and a husband, and a general obsession with books and music.

For fun: hiking, camping and fishing, reading, browsing antique shops.
Bad habits: nail biting, squeezing the toothpaste in the middle and Karaoke.

Fanfiction is a relatively new thing to my experience. When I first encountered the idea, I thought, "What the..." But then I read a few stories. Some of them were fantastic, and inspired me to attempt my own. One can only take such things so seriously, but I am serious about the following.

I will encourage other writers. I will flame no one.

If I may make so bold as to offer any advice, it would be: Don't be afraid to read a story because it has more than a few chapters. There are some gems on this site with 20 or more that just might rock your world! Review if you want to, but above all, have fun reading. If you have an idea for a story, go for it. Don't let doubts keep you from indulging your muse. If someone should flame you, roast weenies.
