About Me

Obviously, this is me!

The best writers lead a dull life, which stimulates the imagination.  My life fits this description.  I have a loving husband, son and live in Indianapolis, Indiana.  In a previous life I was an academic librarian, teacher and odd job extraordinaire.  After I got laid off from my librarian position, I decided to follow my dream and become a writer.

I began my writing career in earnest, as a writer for Demand Studios.  I write short how-to articles, but after several months I wanted to expanded my career.  I had heard every writer had a blog, so it was suggested numerous times that I begin blogging.  This was easier said than done, since I had no idea what to blog about.  As I have said, my life is dull.  My son pukes on my shirt.  I clean him and myself up.  We play peek-a-boo, than I cook dinner.  I know, exciting stuff.

Not me, but love the dress!

After much thought and anxiety, I decided to blog about history.  My fascination with history began as a small child, when my father would tell me stories about Romulus and Remus (the mythical founders of Rome) and Julius Caesar.  Yes, these were odd stories to tell a child, even at bed time, but they kindled a life long love of history.

My father probably regrets those stories now.  Instead of majoring in business or something "useful," I majored in history and religious studies.  History and religion are so intertwined and since I am the product of a mixed marriage (my mother was raised evangelical, my father Catholic), I became obsessed with religion as well.

After receiving my bachelor's degree, I pursued a master's degree in Medieval history.  I decided it wasn't for me and worked a few interesting jobs, before I went back to school to get my master's degree in Library Science (MLS).   I worked several years in academic libraries before being laid off.  Thus, my life in a nutshell.

I incorporate my personal life into my blog and the following post highlight my "uniqueness."  Please don't be frightened!

I've dated Charlemagne, St. John, Henry VIII and John Adams. Yes, I Realize They are Dead.
