Author has written 12 stories for Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia, Jane Eyre, and Enchanted Forest.

Hello, wanderer of the internet! Welcome to the domain of the apprentice wordsmith.

I have always loved to read, and fanfiction fills the void when I can't get to the library. Recently, I've been working on more original fiction than fanfiction, so updates/ new material will appear only sporadically on

I jump for joy every time someone leaves a review. Even if you only have time for a few words, they're like gold to me.

Flames will be publicly humiliated then burned at the stake (actually, in the woodstove), so please be respectful.

My literary interests are wide-ranging, and include the Lord of the Rings universe, Harry Potter, anything by Bernard Cornwell, Pride and Prejudice, Atlas Shrugged, Chronicles of Narnia, and Jane Eyre. If you find interesting fics in these universes, drop me a line. I can't guarantee I'll respond- perks of being an adult and having to work for a living- but I'm always on the lookout for new reading material.

Thanks for stopping in!

Update as of March 8, 2017: Technically, I'm no longer an apprentice wordsmith; I'm the real thing! My first novel is now available via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and the Apple Store. It's a young adult fantasy romance called The Garia Cycle: A Kingdom of Glass.

Since doesn't like links, I'm not going to test its patience, but you can search for my book by title. As of today, it's only available in digital format, but I hope to convert it to paperback within the next month or so. And I'm working on a sequel, so stay tuned for updates!

Update- May 18, 2017:

My latest story is available on Amazon. It's a very short- 17,000 words- supernatural fantasy called By the Light of the Moon. Kindle edition is $.99, so if you're looking for something quick and cheap, check it out.

Update- February 17, 2018:

If you like historical fiction, check out 'Test of Valor', a novella of medieval knights and fair damsels. It's young adult friendly, available on Amazon, and only $1.99. The perfect way to spend an afternoon!

The Making of a Witch
Morwen wasn't always the formidable magic user, down to earth advisor, and willing herder of cats that we meet in the Enchanted Forest series. So how did she get to that point? No slash, sex, or profanity, but there is a bit of- not too graphic- violence along the way.

A Matter of Ducks and Geese reviews
A very young Pippin has a traumatic encounter with geese, and learns to overcome his fear. Rated for moderate violence, because geese are not very nice to little hobbit lads.

The Most Colorful Dragon reviews
Five year old Pippin comes to Bag End for a visit, hoping for an adventure. But when a freak snowstorm keeps everyone inside, he and Frodo have to find a different way of adventuring. One-shot. No slash, sex, profanity, or violence. No plot, either, just hobbity cuteness.

Of Shire Ponies and Other Amphibians reviews
On a hot day, the Brandywine River is the perfect place to cool off. Except if you're a pony, and your owner keeps trying to drown you. A post-quest one-shot featuring Merry and Pippin, in which Merry tries to teach a horse to dog-paddle and it goes about as well as you'd expect. No slash, sex, profanity, or violence.

Petty Revenge, or The Origin of the Monopods reviews
Coriakin is not particularly pleased about his exile. And the inhabitants of his island are terribly annoying. So he tries to do something about it. No slash, sex, profanity, or violence, just a tribe of very stupid Duffers.
Chronicles of Narnia - Rated: K - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 1,037 - Reviews: 4 - Published: 3/16/2013 - Coriakin - Complete

A New Arrival at Brandy Hall reviews
A gentle pre-Quest scene featuring tweenage Frodo and wee!Merry. This is what comes out of a keyboard, a raging case of cabin fever, and a love for baby animals. No slash, sex, profanity, or violence.
