Greetings! I'm Leila, better known as Perian. When not enjoying random bouts of insanity (don't worry, it's not the certifiable kind), I sometimes pick up a pen or pencil. I'm a tween, by Shire reckoning, and currently exist in that pleasant little void between student and teacher, 'twixt doodler and professional. When not brushing up against alternative-realities, pardon the pun, I'm taken on flights of fantasy via words. To Tolkien's realm, of course. What other is there so perfect and far-reaching to dwell within? (In non-Perian English that means I'm a literary hobbiest and editor of an online Tolkien newsletter - see my homepage for that.) Browse, feel free to comment, and, most of all, enjoy!
