Author has written 23 stories for Lord of the Rings, and Silmarillion.
I was born the day that Viking II landed on Mars, which makes me officially Old Enough To Know Better. Whether or not I Know Better, well, that's up to you.

I am not French (nor, for that matter, am I a pony). The name comes from a description of one of my first literary heroines, Laura Ingalls Wilder. "As strong as a little French horse," she was, according to her father.

My literary tastes are somewhat eclectic, otherwise known as "I'll read anything that doesn't escape." A sampling of authors I have enjoyed:

Laura Ingalls Wilder
J. R. R. Tolkien
Terry Pratchett
Tom Clancy
Richard Scarry
Noel Streatfeild
Isaac Bashevis Singer
Marge Piercy
Umberto Eco
Alexandre Dumas
C. S. Lewis
Marguerite Henry
John Irving

The list could go on, certainly. In addition to writing, I enjoy fencing (foil and epee), shape-note singing (check out www.fasola.org to find out what that is), cooking and Scottish Country Dancing.

If you prefer stories on a pretty green background, you can find me at Stories of Arda here: http://www.storiesofarda.com/author.asp?AuthID=303

I've also created an account at fictionpress.com: http://www.fictionpress.com/profile.php?userid=363751
It doesn't have much up, but do stop in if you've got a minute.

I think that's enough to go on.
