Biography:

I'm pretty uncomplicated.  As a writer I focus on Elves in the late First to early Third Age, though it's not a hard and fast rule and I'll read pretty much anything. For me, fanfiction's about telling a tale based around characters I know and love/hate, finding new angles to view them from and discovering what situations they might find themselves in. I've been writing one way or another since I was in junior school, I can't imagine not doing this.   


Personal details: married, mother of two girls, living in Cape Town, South Africa
