Bio: Iris Lefay Longbottom

As a young teenager in the early 70s, I became part of the first wave of Tolkien fandom, and shortly thereafter, Star Trek fandom. A friend and I created a spoof/sequel of LR called “The Lord of the Finger” (Frodo’s finger didn’t get destroyed after all), fortunately lost in the mists of the past. A few years later, White’s The Once and Future King sparked a passion for the Matter of Britain. I also feasted on Lewis, MacDonald, L’Engle, Adams, and many others. I wanted to write stories too, but was completely blocked until I took a Jungian archetypes workshop with my husband in 1996. Then the stories started to flow, giving me the pleasure of learning the narrative art.
Recently I read Bradley’s The Mists of Avalon, which really knocked my socks off, and led me to write the poem “Lancelot Redeemed.” Then Harry Potter came along. I resisted the hype for several months, but got too curious. By the end of Chamber of Secrets I was hooked. Goblet of Fire inspired me to write Auror’s Ransom, the most ambitious writing project I’ve ever completed.
I do freelance and volunteer writing, editing, and illustrating; make a piddly attempt at homemaking; construct mathematical models and work on a book I’m writing about the geometry of tiling; and share my interests with my three daughters, the oldest of whom you know as Leona da Quirm.
