My Writing

I write stories, for fun and for free, set around the characters and worlds of JRR Tolkien and Rosemary Sutcliff. I may in future venture into other worlds: I’m working on an Arthurian modern-day short novel at the moment, inspired in part by the BBC Merlin TV series.

You can find all my fanfic here on Archiveofourown.  You are very welcome to read, download or tell me what you think of these stories!

So far, the writing that I’m proudest of is:

Return to Aman : 15 short stories set after the end of Lord of the Rings, centering around Elrond and his foster-father Maglor.

Quenta Narquelion : A novel-length dramatic retelling of the events of Tolkien’s Silmarillion, from the point of view of Ghost Fëanor.

Coming to the Valley : the creation of the Rings of Power from Elrond’s point of view, and an account of the foundation of Rivendell, and the sequel, Cornflowers in Belfalas in which Elrond meets his wife.

Death comes to Noviomagus Reginorum : a political mystery / novella set in Roman Chichester, with a very elderly Cottia from Eagle of the Ninth.

With a Strange Majesty : a brief account of the Arthurian battle of Badon Hill, from the point of view of Aquila, from Sutcliff’s The Lantern Bearers.
