I have loved history since I read a play about Charlemagne in my 9th grade social studies class. While I specialize in European history I can't turn down a good book, documentary or class about the past. I have passed on that love to my own children as well as others I have had the pleasure and opportunity to assist and teach in my local public school system. Aside from my vast knowledge from books I earned a minor in history from Ashford University. I can't wait to pass my love and knowledge on to others.

As always, history is littered with adultery, murder, betrayal, and other savory topics. Please be advised that we will be touching on some of these topics in an appropriate, respectful, and historical manner.
I have studied for many years and have read numerous books while completing my degree and afterwards, and viewed many documentaries.
