A FANTASY LOVE STORY

When we think of a romantic relationship between a human and an elf, we think of Aragorn and Arwen from The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. However, hardcore Tolkein fans know that his original love story between a human and an elf revolved around Beren and Luthien. This love story was so personally significant to Tolkein that he had Beren and Luthien’s names engraved on his and his wife’s graves. As a writer, I am an amateur when it comes to romance even though I have portrayed romantic relationships in the past. The reason for this is because I never could put enough emotional and spiritual depth. With my third fantasy book, I will be attempting to portray a deeper romantic relationship between my main character and female lead. It will be the deepest and most complex romance I have ever written and it will be my equivalent of Beren and Luthien.
