I was Born on the 2nd of February 1983 in the United Kingdom. I first started
reading J.R.R. Tolkien's works when I was thirteen and from then on fell in love
with middle-earth and its related histories. At sixteen I started up what is Planet-Tolkien
today, although back then it was called "Tolkiens-Middle-Earth.co.uk". About a
year later we moved on to become "Tolkiens-Realm.co.uk". This was when the site
started to get a community following. From then on we became the great site that
we are today and the rest you probably know :o) I kind of lack any interesting
hobbies and the ones I do normally revolve around computers or some hair brained
scheme to make money.
I was born under the Sign of the Twins in the Year of the Dragon in a sleepy little Canadian village. My passions include the sea, dulse (edible seaweed), Fantasy and Science Fiction and Tolkien. My Tolkien collection is better than that in the local public library; and I should know because I work there. Since it has always been my desire to be a professional student, I continue to take Business Administration courses through Memorial University of Newfoundland. You can usually find me in the Chatroom so drop in and introduce yourself.
I am Amarië, or just Ama. Friends call me “you”.
I am, while writing this, two months from turning 23. I live on the Westcoast
of Norway among fjords and tall mountains, here I reside together with my boyfriend
and Blackie, a very, very strange cat. I am studying to become an constructional
engineer, and I plan to building my own hobbit house some day.
Looking back I see that I have been sniffing around Tolkiens world since I
was 10 years old, but never found my way in. Peter Jacksons Fellowship of the
Ring was what (finally) opened the door to Tolkiens wonderful world of books.
I found Planet-Tolkien not long after, and I have been hanging around here ever
I was born in 1989, and grew up in a small English town called Malvern. I started reading Tolkien shortly after the 'The Two Towers' film was released and since, I have been completely taken in by his legendarium and the rest of his works. I started with The Hobbit, to the Lord of the Rings and then the prequels and onwards. I joined Planet-Tolkien in September 2005, and became a Council Member in September 2008. I am very interested in Tolkien's works revolving around his mythology, myself very interested in Norse myth and legend, and his languages. I am working on a guide to show how to read Tengwar, the Elvish characters, using my own sketches and tables, to include the different systems and styles of the script, with a comprehensive list of common phrases. I will never be tired of reading his epic works.
I live in British Columbia Canada and am a freelance writer, mostly for children, but I have worked with abused children for a long time, and also with the elderly. To me they are heros like those in LOTR. I go to Planet-Tolkien to share my thoughts with others of like mind in a safe nourishing place. Planet-Tolkien is a haven for me.

I am not sure what else anyone would be interested in knowing about me. So,
I guess I will stop.
Born on 3rd February, a typical Aquarian who doesn't believe in horoscopes or
astrology. Mother-of-three and a domestic goddess who enjoys DIY, reading, music
and Sci Fi in all forms and a big fan of Farscape and Star Trek (yes, I am a sad
muppet). Tolkien is The Best and I have The Hobbit, LotR, The Silmarillion, Unfinished
Tales, the complete H.O.M.E, Bilbos Last Song, The Lays of Beleriand and (thanks
to Legolaslass) some Tolkien tapes . I enjoy writing in 'Another Story - The Quest
For the Straight Road' and I sporadically write poetry (see journal entries).
I love dragons, second hand books, wooden boxes, and anything purple. I role-play
about once a month but can't take it as seriously as the guys. I dislike arrogance,
aggression and ironing but I love Eddie Izzard, Black Books, Spaced, Red Dwarf
and The West Wing. My favourite films include Same Time Next Year, Big Fish, Amelie,
Cabaret and The Rocky Horror Picture Show

What keeps me busy: Currently a student of "Professional Writing and Editing", Chisholm Institute of Technical and Further Education.

Hello! I am MelliotSandybanks and I am a 35-year-old wife and mom. My family
and I currently live in Texas, near Dallas. I do not have a paying job, but
I do a lot of work at home. I homeschool our 8 year old son, who is in the 3rd
grade. I also tend to do a lot of different crafty projects. I love all animals
and most seem to like me as well,thus we have a huge menagerie of pets. I love
learning new languages and am very interested in history and mythology. That
may be the reason I have enjoyed reading Tolkiens works so much.
My family says that I am obsessed with the world of J.R.R. Tolkien. I have read:
The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, Book
of Lost Tales I, Book of Lost Tales II, Sir Gwain and the Green Knight , Smith
of Wooten Major , Farmer Giles of Ham and Leaf by Niggle. I started out wanting
to know more and more about the geography and then I went on to the genealogy
of Middle Earth. I now have maps on about four different walls in various rooms
throughout my house, and I am in the process of working out the genealogies
on my computer.
Thirty-nine is too young for an elf to lose his hair, so I've recently come to
the conclusion I am not actually an elf.
My, how time flies! Since I'm now 41, it means I must have written that original
statement for this council page a couple of years ago. How time flies... Those
who in the past couple of years have visited my own site, will know that the
hair has pretty much all gone now, but I'll keep the picture on the left there,
as it's pretty much the inner me that I see when there are no mirrors around.
So what can I say about myself? I was born in a small English backwater similar
to the Shire, back in 1963. Like Bilbo visiting Rivendell, however, my life didn't
really begin until my late teens when I started university. It was there that
I first discovered Tolkien and his wondrous world, a world that has had such a
major influence on my life ever since. It was there that I also discovered role
playing games, such as AD&D, and later Rolemaster, and between these and Tolkien's
books, I was pretty much living in Middle Earth until the late nineties.
