About me

Gender FEMALE
Introduction I teach theater history and English literature and composition at the university level. This is a book blog, so I write about what I read for fun. My interests include science fiction, young adult (and some middle grade) fiction, fantasy, "literary fiction," historical fiction, queer/LGBT issues, theater, film, "chick lit," and mystery. I'm particularly interested in women authors and/or strong female (or queer) characters.
Interests books, film, theater, feminism, queer studies, gender studies, LGBT issues, literature, Shakespeare, the 1950s, film noir
