Bio:

I've been in the Silmarillionfandom since late 2001, when the movies inspired me to pick up my pen (or, more accurately, sit down at my keyboard) and start writing. My best-known work features the Fëanorians (especially Maedhros). My muse hasn't been very talkative lately, but I hope you enjoy her earlier output.
