Author has written 28 stories for Frasier, Lord of the Rings, and Silmarillion.

Please let me know what you think--I'm always anxious for reviews.

In regards to the personal, I'm a self-employed 38-year-old who, after both a brief foray into other fanfic & wishing for more ME tales, decided to be brave and try my hand at it myself. I am also crazy about books in general, music (even opera--yikes!), cooking, and all around living well. Does this make me a hobbit after all? :-)

Just to let my many & kind readers know, I am planning a whole series of Eowyn stories based on "Snowdrops & Bluebells", as well as a group of Shire tales connected to my Frodo/Pearl stories. A number of planned works are listed below.

Some of my work is also archived at the following fine sites:

Henneth-Annum: http://www.henneth-annum.net

West of the Moon: http://www.west-of-the-moon.net
