About meTrained as a literary scholar (German and classics). Language geek. Reenactor and amateur seamstress.

Originally from Colorado. Now an academic editor and translator in Germany.

About my libraryRoughly equal parts literary fiction, foreign language titles and linguistics/lit crit/philosophy, plus sf/fantasy and historical fiction for leisure.

I've mostly listed only books that I actually possess, as my tastes in books have changed tremendously since adolescence; although the "read but unowned" collection does include a sampling of books I've read over the years which are still meaningful to me in some way.
