Think of these posts as rabbit holes – tidbits of information I stumbled on that led me somewhere unexpected. These stories are too good not to share, even if the women involved aren’t wearing tiaras. For example, when I found a reference to a vampire princess in 18th century Bohemia, I dropped what I was doing to figure out whether it was full of scheisse or a story worth telling. All these stories are jaw-dropping, heartbreaking, hilarious, or all of the above. I hope you enjoy them.
