Angela Nicholas graduated in Latin at London University in 1971 and subsequently gained post-graduate qualifications in Librarianship (1974) and Information Technology (1989). She is now retired after a career first in higher education as a librarian and then in local government as an IT specialist.
In 1973 a friend persuaded her to read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings thereby triggering a lasting interest in the works of J. R. R. Tolkien. Being dissatisfied with the portrayal of Aragorn in Peter Jackson's LotR films she embarked on a detailed study of the character as depicted by Tolkien. She is a member of the Tolkien Society and the Southampton UK Tolkien Reading Group, and has contributed several articles to the Society's publication Amon Hen.
Angela has lived in Portsmouth (UK) for many years with husband, Chris Mac Arthur, and cats. She and Chris enjoy the countryside and are keen walkers. They are also members of the 1745 Association whose aims are to study the Jacobite Movement and preserve the memories of those involved in it.
