Biography:

Originally my sorties into fanfic were in the Buffyverse, but I have migrated towards Tolkien over the years.  My long series of stories began as a crossover, but are now 99% Middle Earth Elf-centric.


 


I enjoy the discipline of writing drabbles and take part regularly in the Tolkien Weekly challenges on LJ - these are 100% Tolkien-based.
