Biography:


This bard writes a lot, loves to read a lot and likes to muse about a huge variety of ideas that firmly takes root in Tolkien's world. Foremost a Silmarillion writer (Maglor & Celegorm the most), but I love to read a hobbity story (especially Bilbo) once a while.


However, after two draining and very eventful years, I decided to take a fannish sabbatical of an unknown duration. The rollercoaster has not come to an end yet, so you will not see me around with new works, or reviews coming from me. You might encounter me as I work behind the scenes of an archive, but that is it. Of course it does make sense that someone with two children that young (and one with pdd-nos) doesn't have much time to write (unless you get me more hours in a day). Rest assured, I will still reply to reviews, will finish some works that needs to be finished, some day...
