Title: Oromë

As you know, Oromë is one of my favourite characters to write and your bio shows exactly why! What a pleasure to read and to see his part in the Silmarillion tapestry illustrated so well.



Author's Response:

Thank you so much, Rhapsody, I am thrilled that you enjoyed it. It was my folkloric, into-the-woods, Halloween piece. I hoped I did him justice. There were other things I could have included--Northern gods like Odin, etc. I also found extremely interesting details on stories of the Wild Hunt from the Netherlands and Germany. But I had to stay on the subject somewhat, while balancing the reader's knowledge and interest in the character. Can't get too far away from a biography in these and can't pick things to include which require too much background added. Everytime I write one, I find material of a much bigger non-fiction piece than a biography.

 

Thanks again!!
