I’m a literary critic and fiction writer. I wrote the novels The Quelling (Lanternfish, 2018) and An Unclean Place (forthcoming, Spring 2023), as well as an academic monograph, Science, Language, and Reform in Victorian Poetry (Routledge, 2019). My research interests include women, gender, and sexuality, the environmental humanities, the blue humanities, writing pedagogy, and critical feminist pedagogy. Originally from Atlanta, I have lived in New York, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, and now Lund, Sweden, where I teach literature and writing and live with my husband, daughter, and pets.
