A Bit About Me

My name is Lisa Donnelly. Currently I am a student at Queen's University, Belfast, Northern Ireland.  I am working towards my MSc (Education) Computer Based Learning degree.  (To find out more about the degree, go to the Institute of Computer Based Learning.)I am a graduate of Eastern Kentucky University, BA in English.  I also did some work towards my Master's in English there, as well as happily performing duties as a Teaching Assistant for one semester.  Go Colonels!

There are some pictures of my family here.

You may read my resume (or 'curriculum vitae,' if you prefer) here.

Likes and Dislikes

My favourite authors of fiction are William Faulkner, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and ... well, John Grisham; my favourite poets are Walt Whitman and Samuel Taylor Coleridge; my favourite playwrights are Tennessee Williams and Oscar Wilde.

As for multimedia, my favourite TV show at the minute is the X-Files. Being in the United Kingdom, I've gotten used to being WAY behind in American television---episodes are shown here roughly six months after they are aired in the states. I also really like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Enterprise, Angel, and Smallville.


Some of my favourite current films are: Kate and Leopold, Snatch, and Lord of the Rings.

I've also constructed a page that lists more of my favourites.


In my free time I enjoy hiking, camping, and writing.  This past summer we enjoyed a week of camping in Ireland, Wales, and southern England.

An example of some of my non-fiction work is a biography of the actor Sam Neill.

As for dislikes, there really aren't many.  I like a diversity of music, film, literature.  I suppose my only real dislikes are narrow-mindedness and bigotry. Oh, and cricket---I just don't understand that game.
