B.A.  in English from University of Arkansas Fort Smith  

I am a native of Arkansas and a graduate of University of Arkansas Fort Smith.  I received my M.A. in English from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville in 2008.  I am currently working on my Ph.D. and researching 19th century novels.  I have taught both Composition I and II, and enjoy seeing students discover that they can say something valuable to themselves and their communities.  My research interests vary widely from gothic literature, popular culture, Nineteenth Century novels, Romantic poetry, Native American literature, and detective stories (and then some).
