I first read the Lord of the Rings in my pre-teen years, got hooked and gradually got my hands on all JRRT books that concern Arda and its wonderful history.
I have been wetting my feet in the waters of Tolkien fanfiction since 2000, although it was in 2011 that I finally became satisfied enough with my ideas to start developing them and eventually share them with others. I like exploring the gaps that Professor Tolkien so graciously left in his works for us to indulge our creative side. I've always feared, however, that my portrayal of canon characters wouldn't do them justice, so I began by creating original characters to fit into those gaps. But, time has passed and as I slowly gain more confidence in portraying canon characters, I begin to have dealings with them and the gaps left in the story in earnest.
My stories may also be found at the Henneth-Annun Story Archive and FanFiction Net.
When managing to pull myself out of the magic of Arda and into the real world, I am a vet with an undying love for cats. I enjoy reading (anything from theatrical plays to science fiction); listening to jazz; watching good films; cooking and experimenting with new recipes; drawing.
