What is her fangirl interest?
*All things having to do with Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings, and The Hobbit. It’s her job, after all!
*Anything Sci-Fi related: Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Stargate…she’s obsessed really.
*Her absolute favorite character would have to be The Doctor. Specifically the 10th Doctor. If you ever have a few hours to spare, go ahead and ask her about him.
*One great thing about her is that she very keen to adopt new fandoms. She got into the Game of Thrones show, immediately read all the books, and has been known to style her hair like Daenerys Targaryen.
Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this fangirl?
When I first read about YOTFG, the first person I thought of was Arwen. She is an awesome and kind person who also happens to be an ubergeek. And it makes sense for her to be featured on Her Universe because you could just point to any of the t-shirts or geeky gear in the shop and find a great present for her!
How does this fangirl express her fandom?
In addition to founding and running Middle-earth News (middleearthnews.com), she is also on a geeky girl podcast called Warriors of the Westfold (www.warriorsofthewestfold.com) where she and the other girls talk about all kinds of geeky things. Oh, and her car is named Chewbacca.
What is her favorite fangirl item that she cannot live without?
It’s so hard to figure out what her absolute favorite fangirl item would be! She loves her Doctor Who t-shirts, and her Hobbit totebag, but the best might be her poseable Gollum figure. (PHOTO: http://distilleryimage7.s3.amazonaws.com/2ff71cc8961111e1a92a1231381b6f02_6.jpg)
