Biography:   Regarding writing, I am truly a jack of all trades like a bard. My taste and bunnies vary from ages, races and characters, although Maglor has claimed me as his bard, sometimes he reluctantly shares me with Celegorm whom I so love to write. I have a soft spot for the Dunedain, Fëanorians and Númenoreans. I discovered my love for this craft at a young age, as a child I always dreamed of becoming a writer. I choose this screen name because the name has something poetic and the meaning of the word Rhapsody surely fits me as a person. My mother tongue is Dutch, so I am a second language author. Please bear with me as I hope to grow and learn writing stories. I promise you, it will be a fun ride.
