I'm a PhD in a historical field and have university/museum teaching experience. I am also a published non-fiction writer and a longtime, serious student of religious and socio-cultural history in several languages, because the subjects have been necessary to my scholarly understanding of my own field. I've had professional reason to study the history of royalty as well. I'm also interested in the history of children's literature and have recently taken an interest in good YA books as well. (I collect children's literature.) And I enjoy fashion, a passion I am able to indulge in the big city in which I live.
