||I live in Port Angeles WA. I paint watercolors as my primary interest, but in order to pay my bills I also work at the local hospital as a Medical Technologist. I also have a degree in Range Conservation. I started writing LOTR stories as a form of therapy. I was totally obsessed (not healthy obsessed, unhealthy obsessed) with the story and characters after the movies came out. Suddenly, my childhood heros had a face and personality, surprisingly close to what I had imagined all along. I since have thoroughly enjoyed myself with my writing, meeting via email many wonderful authors, and just feeling welcome in the world of fanfiction.
