The name "Aethelthryth" is an old English version of "Audrey".  My name isn't Audrey either, but since my husband won't let me name any daughters Aethelthryth, I thought such an interesting name should get used somehow.

I think of myself as a fiction writer, but I can't remember when I last wrote a story.  Because nobody pays anybody to sit around writing whatever they feel like, I spent some years as a technical writer (that's who writes the manuals that have to be there even if nobody reads them.)  So I am used to writing about boring stuff and trying to make it sound interesting.  I am enjoying writing non-fiction on HubPages because I get to pick interesting subjects.  At least they interest me!
