About “The Queen”

My name is Angie and I live in a suburb of Chicago.  I have two daughters, Miss M, 8, and C, 3, and have been married since 1999 to the indomitable J.  I am a stay at home mom who doesn’t really “stay at home” with my kids.  I am not a crafty mom but I appreciate a good craft when I see it, especially if it is easy.  Emphasis on the word easy.

Before kids I worked in both public and academic libraries.  I am currently volunteering at Miss M’s school library.  We love to read and so you can expect a mention here and there of our favorite books.

I try to get Miss M to write on here once and awhile.  Even though she hasn’t been wanting to do so lately, I keep this option open for her and call them “Miss M’s Musings.”

Besides books, my other favorite thing in the world is archives, especially as it pertains to family history.  I have another website called Tillie’s Tales where I daily blog a diary or “news book” that my grandmother wrote in her late teens/early twenties during the 1930s.  She lived in a small southern Illinois town, Hecker, while writing her entries.
