Tolkien and I; when first we met.

I remember the moment with total clarity, when one of my great loves began.

The Lineage of Amroth [IV / VI]

The Lineage of Amroth [IV / VI]

After a long break away, writing about Absurdism rather than Aragornism, I've finally come back to finish this story, and at least a good three more. The fourth part of the six tales of Ivriniel of Dol Amroth shows her returning home from her apprenticeship under Galadriel, where she must come to terms with returning to the reality of her matured, and loss of, life.

Grief of the North Kingdom (a novel)

CHAPTER NINE - After struggling for two days during a forced subterranean march in the mountains, Vilthavia finds himself miserably separated from his beloved Elendis in the confines of a dark dungeon.

The Lineage of Amroth [I / VI]

This new series follows the untold story of Ivriniel, the older sister of Finduilas, wife of Denethor and Imrahil of Dol Amroth, and of the past ties of her heritage to the Elves of Lothlorien, and of her own path to maturity and the shaping of fates. This was influenced highly by my current location upon the southwest coasts of Brittany in France, where one cannot help but look upon the sea, the ancient monuments and stoic port-fortresses of ages past and think of Tolkien's world - especially of the lay of Belfalas and the mysteries of the Eldar.
