Bio:
I am an artist and custom fabric dyer, and, yes, writer, making my living from my eBay Store, Magicalrealist Gallery. I'm a lifelong Tolkien fan-- I published my first fanfic back in the days when that was done on paper. Well, actually, it was a poem. Close enough.

Summary: For Éowyn death was easy, surviving; on the other hand, was proving to be the greatest challenge of her life. The road back from the Darkness was longer and harder than she ever imagined. Did she really possess the strength and courage to step once more into the Light?

Summary: The Ring had fallen to Sauron's hands. What has fallen for the remaining people of Arda? Samwise Gamgee walks upon the Shire still but he is not free. He can only watch the last sunflower fall and weep. An AU fic of what might have happened if Sauron had taken the Ring, and its process. Rated PG-13 for some graphic violence.

She Took a Holiday by Ria Rated: PG-13 [Reviews - 15]
Summary: This is a response to GreenWoodElleth's "Bad Girls" challenge. I was terribly intrigued by the idea of a bad (not evil and plotting to rule the world, but merely wicked) female hobbit. Xenobia Took gradually goes from bad to worse in the course of her long and adventurous life.
