Biography:

Formerly known as Winterwitch. Middle-aged, German, Tolkien lover since I first read the Hobbit at age 10 and LotR soon afterwards, and many times again since then. I've started delving deeper into Tolkien's other works only last year, but the Silmarillion has already taken over as my favourite.


I discovered the fascinating world of fanfiction in 2006 and spent some years in the Potterverse, reading, writing and translating fanfic in German and English. In late 2012 I was drawn into the Tolkienverse which became my main fandom, and also added podficcing to my fannish activities.


Tolkien's elves fascinated me right from the start, from 1st to 4th age, and I am a bit obsessed with have a very soft spot for Elrond, his family and friends.
