Hi there! My name is Kate. I’m a public-interest lawyer by day, dabbler at most other times. I write in my spare time (historical fiction, mainly, but also this blog) and I love to learn. I spend too long on Wikipedia fairly often. Generally I’m in the middle of reading about five books at once (and that’s when I’m trying to cut down). I love the outdoors, food, beer, travel, history, costume dramas of all stripes, languages, genealogy, beauty and peace and transformation and stuff.
