HDKingsbury is a retired Telephone Company supervisor who is now able to devote her time to history and literature. She is actively involved in the Civil War community and is president of the Greater Toledo Civil War Roundtable.
She is also fascinated with Ancient and Medieval history, and is a card-carrying member of the Richard III Society, American Branch. The recent finds of Richard III's remains, buried under a Leicester car park, was (in HD's opinion) a Ricardian dream come true!
In addition to a fascination with history, HD is also a voracious reader whose tastes include both non-fiction to fiction, from first-hand accounts of Civil War soldiers, to Gothic Victorian literature, to modern-day paranormal romances.
When it comes to Gothic Lit, HD is particularly fascinated by "The Phantom of the Opera" phenomenon. Her love of all things Phantom began many years ago when, as a teenager, she fell in love with Claude Rains as Erique Claudin. The rest, as they say...is history!
