Joan Loyd Hernandez, Ph.D.

I'm a retired university professor of Spanish and French, and believe that the Shakespeare authorship debate should be open for discussion in academic settings.

My father introduced me to the authorship question many years ago, and ever since I've been fascinated with the issue. I think Edward De Vere wrote the plays.
