Bio:
Hello. I am soon to be 45 years old. I am a woman, I have a bachelor's degree from a state university. I served in the USARMY from 2003 to 2008. I am married, have no children, and have been working on these stories since I was stationed in Okinawa around 2006. It's hard to believe it's almost been ten years.


A lot has happened in those years. As I said, I served my time in the Army, came home somewhat damaged, and married in 2009. My stepfather passed away in 2013 and my mother this past February. They were my reviewers, my copy editors, and my biggest fans and I feel lost without them.


I expect writing about my mother in Middle Earth at the end of book three will be rather emotional for me now. Perhaps it will make the tale more authentic, somehow.


I apologize for the long hiatus and appreciate the reviews which continue to inspire me.


I SHALL RETURN!

Thank you for reading.

Summary:

This is the continuing saga of a 36 year old female soldier who finds herself in Middle Earth during The Return of the King. This is part three of a series which will follow the plot of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings books. She is not a tenth walker and the events as written by Professor Tolkien will not be rewritten to accommodate her. Her part in the story and her interactions with the main characters will occur in places and times that Tolkien did not include in his writings.


I claim ownership of none of J.R.R. Tolkien's original plot or characters; however, Elaura and her story Typically Atypical are Copyrighted © 2006.
