About me

I am in my mid twenties, working on my Masters degree in History: Ancients and Classics, and currently work for the the Dept. of Veterans Affairs. When I’m not working, I’m probably doing one of the following: reading, cooking/baking, traveling, or hanging out with my husband and our two cats.

I started my blog, The Maiden’s Court, in May 2009 as a creative outlet for my reading and it has completely taken me to new places. I love sharing my reading and the things that I learn and meeting/talking with others who share the same interest.
