Biography:   Greetings! I've been a fan of LotR since I first read it 40-some years ago, became a "Tolkien scholar" about ten years after that, started setting his poems to music at about the same time, and only began venturing into writing Tolkien-based fanfic during a fit of boredom while at work in the early 1990s. I'm a writer/editor/artist/musician/composer/costume designer living in semi-rural Wisconsin, with interests in so many things, I've often been asked if there's something I DON'T do. Dance. I'm a total klutz. I'm currently experiencing a severe bout of writer's block, which has stalled the LotR fanfic I've been posting on my own website. But I'm very happy to see other's work in the genre still thriving here. (Oh, and my favorite character is Gandalf.)

bullet No Greater Love Part One: The Reckoning Last Updated: 9/17/2013
Five years after his return to Valinor, Olórin faces the final Reckoning of his mission as one of the Istari, and at long last remembers things he did not know he had forgotten. If this story seems a bit more floridly descriptive in places than my usual writing, blame it on Katherine Kurtz. Katherine was a good friend and mentor to me during some of the most formative years of my growth as a writer; I consider this to be an act of praise and recognition of her wonderful books.
