Author has written 5 stories for Lord of the Rings, and Chronicles of Narnia.

Hello, wanderer of the internet! Welcome to the -uh- domain of the apprentice wordsmith. I hope I don't scare you too badly.

I have always loved to read, and fanfiction fills the void when I can't get to the library. Recently, I've decided to try my hand at writing fiction, though my skills are undisciplined and average at best. Reader reviews are the best possible reward for my literary efforts, so I'll gladly accept any constructive comments you have, since my goal is to actually improve said skills. Please feel free to comment on characterization, pacing, grammar, etc. (That being said, any review is a good review, and if you don't have time for a long critique, a few words will do just fine.)

I am a proud member of a few wide-ranging fandoms, including the Lord of the Rings universe, Harry Potter, The Warlord Trilogy, Pride and Prejudice, A Song of Ice and Fire, Chronicles of Narnia, and Jane Eyre. My television must-haves are NCIS, Person of Interest, and -to a lesser extent- CSI.

At some point -as in, when I have some actual stories on this site-, readers will begin to notice that many of them make mention of horses, cooking, history, politics, construction of old-style buildings, and country life in general. These topics encompass many of my own interests and so, I find it easier to write about them. As my confidence with writing/publishing grows, I will branch out. I might be persuaded to adopt random plot bunnies at some point as well.

I must confess that updates will be sporadic. I currently find myself with large amounts of unwanted free time, but I can't always find the inspiration and concentration to write, at least, not at the same time.

Thanks for coming to read my ramblings!

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.

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.
