Bio:

A Rohanian who eats like a hobbit and wishes she was an elf ;)

I am of the female variety and living happily with a very nice man in a very nice little home full of fun books, music and films that refuse to stop inspiring me.

I like jogs, dogs, walks, visiting castles/historic sites, history, the countryside and wide open fields/spaces, forests, the beautiful English landscape in general, reading, cooking, horse riding, my hugely ignoble steed (bless), photography, pear cider, music, breakfast, newcastle brown ale, writing when I get time and inspiration, gigs, eating, whiskey...

I enjoy reading:
Tolkien
Robin Hobb
Scott Lynch
Patrick Rothfuss
Chris Evans
Juliet Marillier (well...kind of)
Neil Gaiman
Terry Pratchett
Sarah Ash
Cecilia Dart Thornton (well I liked the first Bitterbynde one, after that things fell downhill)
CS Lewis
Angus Donald
Holly Black
Phillipa Gregory
William Blake
Robert E Howard
Mark Twain
Edgar Allen Poe
Shakespeare
Recently Stephanie Meyer... well... ish .. for comic value and take your brain out entertainment

etc etc.

I enjoy listening to:
