I'm an academic based in the northeastern United States. Not presently attached to any university, but looking to be so, and therefore this journal is friends-only (with the exception of theatre reviews).
Here, you're likely to find books, television, random historical facts, and lots of wittering about the Wars of the Roses. I've been obsessed with them since I was twelve, and it shows no sign of abating. I keep trying to write a novel about them. Someday, hopefully, I will succeed. I love A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones and I hate Philippa Gregory. My standards are idiosyncratic, but they are my own.
I have a pretty open friending policy, so just comment on one of my public entries.
