Troels Forchhammer is best known in the Tolkien usenet newsgroups, [rec.arts.books.tolkien] and [] (also available from [Google Groups]), where he has been contributing regularly to the discussions since 2001.

A member of the Tolkien Society and the Mythopoeic Society, Troels presented his paper, Voices of a Music: Models of Free Will in Tolkien's Middle-earth, at the Tolkien Society's 2008 Seminar.

When not discussing Tolkien on-line, or reading books by or about Tolkien, Troels divides his time between his family (a wife and four children), the Danish Scout and Guide Association where he is a group leader, and his job, working with data analysis for a large European cell-phone company.
