Ragnar's Saga


Ok, let's start with the title of the site, Ragnar's Saga. One of my hobbies is reading about medieval history, especially the vikings. A good friend of mine gave me the nickname Ragnar after an infamous viking chieftain, Ragnar Lodbrok, so I thought it was an appropriate way to describe my writing life.

Here goes with some random facts about myself:
