Author has written 13 stories for Chronicles of Narnia, and Lord of the Rings.
My brother is a published author and my mother taught English for many years, so you could say that writing is in my blood. I first began at the tender age of 9, and wrote what could quite possibly be the worst attempt at an original fantasy ever. That made it to about four chapters. Since then, I've played around with short original fiction pieces, but mostly I write fanfiction.
I'm by no means a professional; I have a basic college education, many years of reading, and a life-long love affair with the written word as my writing foundation. I think writing is amazing, because (if I do it right) I can take an emotion and convey it to the reader. It's not just story-telling, it is a way of expressing and analyzing our humanity. And, frankly, it's fun. I like to write.
If you are interested in some great reading, try my beta shie1dmaidenofrohan for Lord of the Rings, JunoMagic for Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, Gevasia for Fantasic Four and Phantom, and Almyra, Capegio or elecktrum for Narnia.
