Department Head, Associate Professor
Office: HL 140
I received my BA at the University of Kentucky and both my MA and PhD from the University of Southern Mississippi, where I specialized in twentieth-century British literature with secondary emphasis on Victorian literature. My publications include Understanding Will Self (University of South Carolina Press, 2007), the first in-depth critical examination of Self’s work. In addition to writing about Self, I have published essays on other contemporary British novelists and poets such as Martin Amis, Ian McEwan, Craig Raine and Christopher Reid. Since 2006 I have been General editor for the Sam Rayburn Series on Rural Life, a project that Texas A&M University-Commerce has sponsored under the auspices of Texas A&M University Press since 1987.
