I'm Portia1780. I hold a Masters Degree in French Literature from University of Kentucky, in Lexington, Kentucky. My current research interests include Marie de France and Chretien de Troyes. I also enjoy Francois Villon, Charles d'Orleans, and (of course) Christine de Pizan.

I am a huge fan of the Louisville Cardinals.

In real life, I am a technical writer at Lexmark in Lexington, Kentucky. I live in Winchester, Kentucky.
