About meMy doctoral studies and PhD dissertation focused on legal justice, while my Masters research was on executions (hangings, beheadings, etc.) but my interests include, European dynastic history, France, Germany, Britain, Russia; also gay/sexual issues. I also enjoy literary works, especially British lit, mysteries, humor, and other random works.

About my libraryMy library reflects my interest in history - specifically my research in execution and torture. But it also includes my interest in dynastic history and politics. Of course, the gay and lesbian materials also make up a substantial chunk. In addition, my interest in literature, and philosophy, and mystery also shows up. Also, I am interested in languages, film, humor.

Before becoming a grad student, I managed a book store, plus I've always been a bibliophile, even as a child who didn't know the meaning of that word.
