Biography:

Hi :-) I'm Pearl Took. I've been writing Tolkien fanfiction since 2003. My specialty is Hobbits though I have written some stories that feature the other races of Middle-earth. I'm slightly older than "The Lord of the Rings" if you use the year that "Return of the King" was published as it's age. Hugs, Pearl
