My introduction to Classical mythology came about the same way as many Americans by checking out from the school library D’Aulaires Book of Greek Myths. I was completely hooked and where many people it was just a phase for me it was a lifelong obsession which developed into classical history, philosophy and science. By no means was my interest confined to Greek mythology, but also especially Norse and Egyptian mythology and history. This lifelong obsession was the inspiration for this site.
I double majored in college twenty years ago in literature and anthropology which only further cemented my interest. I was enamored by the folklore and mythology. A further interest which fermented in college was in medieval women writers.
