I have a Ph.D. in Modern Letters from the University of Tulsa.  My main area of interest is the British novel, particularly in the Nineteenth Century.  I am also interested in women writers, literary theory, and the twentieth-century American novel.  For an overview of my career, please look at my vita.

I regularly teach courses in women writers (2002) (2006), the British novel (2003), and the modern novel.  Occasionally I teach special topic courses such as Jane Austen:  Novels and Films.  I also teach an online graduate course on Modern/Postmodern Narratives through BlackBoard.
