Bio:

I have enjoyed reading Tolkien's works for many years, and especially enjoy the Silmarillion because it has so many holes that cry out to be filled with detailed stories. More recently, I started writing some of those stories down, and then I discovered this site.


My main goals in my Silmarillion stories are to have fun, gain practice, improve my writing, and gain feedback. I also try to give constructive criticism to others whose writing I read. Most of my stories are on fanfiction.net and I'm in the process of getting around to putting them up here.


Two of my stories have been MEFA 2010 nominated: Bringing Trouble to Barad-dur and The OTHER Lays of Beleriand. Bringing Trouble to Barad-dur won 3rd place in the Humor:incomplete subcategory. I have since finished it, and am in the process of putting it up here. Many thanks to DawnFelagund and Aidalewing for the nominations, and to everyone who voted for my stories.


I have just published The Box Turned Inside Out, a collection of short fantasy stories on Amazon Amazon Kindle. I also have a website for my original fiction, so if you like what you see here, come and visit http://www.eehills.com for more stories.
