Author has written 13 stories for Lord of the Rings, and Silmarillion.

My stories are usually about Aragorn (strictly bookverse, but not always canon). I'm an old-time Tolkien fan from the 1960s.

Other fantasy-adventure writers and stories I like: Robin Hobb, George R. R. Martin, Ursula Le Guin, Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover series, Orson Scott Card's Alvin Maker series, T.H. White's "Once and Future King," Eddings' The Worm Ouroboros, Joy Chant, Evangeline Walton's Mabinogion. Susanna Clarke's "Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell" is a must-read! Exciting, funny, haunting. Non-fantasy adventure: Arturo Perez-Reverte is the best.

I also read Anthony Trollope, Jane Austen, Toni Morrison, Shakespeare and J. G. Farrell (among many others), as well as a good amount of history and politics.

I am the proud winner of the very first Stubborn Limpet Award from the Garden of Ithilien workshop, as well as a few MEFAwards.

Food for thought:

"Purists might wish for a corpus with fewer contradictions, a canon less amorphous - one that allows them to declare, without equivocation, 'Thus saith Tolkien.' Yet, perhaps the good professor did not intend it to be so...the mythologies of our ancestors are not received in tidy, set form. They are based on oral traditions that took on new flavor as they passed from bard to bard, hamlet to hamlet. Over time, stories changed to reflect the needs and challenges of their tellers. Tolkien knew this; perhaps his greatest gift to us lies in all those unfinished manuscripts, for what we have is a fictional legendary that truly resembles the myths of the real world. And perhaps the greatest tribute to his work is the humble fan's attempt to add her vision to that legendary, for by her efforts, Tolkien's dream of an enduring mythology proves not so fanciful after all."

After fifteen years of fruitlessly searching for the creature called Gollum, Gandalf forsook the hunt. Though Aragorn persevered for a time, tracking his quarry on the marches of Mordor, he too despaired at last and began his homeward journey...

The Wizard and the Ranger reviews
Tolkien tells us in the Tale of Years that Aragorn and Gandalf met in 2956, when Aragorn was 25 years old, but he does not tell us how it happened. Maybe the real story was not solemn enough for the official annals of the history of Middle-earth.
