Author has written 16 stories for Lord of the Rings.

Many of the stories archived herein contain M-rated material and are homoerotic in nature (i.e. slash fiction). If you are underage or depictions of same sex relationships disturb you, go no further or proceed with caution as the case may be. Otherwise, welcome aboard and I do hope you enjoy reading these stories as much as I enjoyed writing them.

oOoOoOo — oOoOoOo — oOoOoOo

UPDATE (01/24/14): It's been ages since I posted anything here on FFN. I can only plead work and sundry other distractions which led me to concentrate my fandom and fanfic efforts on LJ. I'll try to update my stories here as much as I can. In the meantime, I published three more books for my series Chronicles of YlandreBy Chance Met, Heartstrings and Cross Purposes—and I'm working on Book Six. Its working title is In Fine Form and I hope to submit to my publisher by mid-February. All my books are available on LSBooks, Amazon, ARe and other online ebook retailers.

ANNOUNCEMENT (10/19/10): Hallowed Bond is now available at Liquid Silver Books! For an excerpt, go here.

10/07/10: I've got a release date for the sequel to Sacred Fate! Book Two of the Chronicles of Ylandre, Hallowed Bond will be coming out on October 18, 2010.

04/27/10: Just popping up to announce that my second book has been accepted for publication! It goes by the title Hallowed Bond and (those who read the first book Sacred Fate will be familiar with these characters) will feature Rohyr Essendri’s half-brother Dylen and the ambassador Riodan Leyhar. I’ve already sent in the cover art request and now all I can do is wait for my editor to contact me and the cover art proof and to continue writing the third book.

On a related note, I’ve been asked if I base my characters on real life men. My answer is: insofar as physical appearance, yes, I usually do. It’s easier to picture a character if one has an actual person in mind. That said, there are characters I can’t match with any real life people—at least not perfectly—so I go by imagination alone. However, when it comes to filling up the aforementioned cover art request, I look for actors/models who even vaguely resemble those characters. That’s so the cover artist will have a concrete basis for her work.

NEWS FLASH (09/14/09): As mentioned in the Author's Notes of my latest story, An Ounce of Kindness, I wrote an original novel that's been published as an ebook. Sacred Fate is now available at Liquid Silver Books. For an excerpt, go here.
