Writing

I have two essays featured in the recently published collection edited by Lynnette Porter, Sherlock Holmes for the 21st Century: Essays on New Adaptations: “‘Bromance is so passé’: Robert Downey, Jr.’s Queer Paratexts” and, co-authored with my UF colleague Francesca Marinaro, “‘Don’t make people into heroes, John’: (Re/De)Constructing the Detective as Hero.” You can purchase the book directly from McFarland Publishing or from Amazon and other book vendors.

I have also had two short articles, or ‘curations,’ featured at In Media Res, a community dedicated to collaborative, multi-modal forms of media scholarship: “Reporting from the Frontlines: Fan Conventions Go Digital” and “What Fangirls Want: Making More of and More from Marvel’s Men.”

Papers that I have delivered at academic conferences are listed on my CV.

My poetry has been published in Danse Macabre, Aiofe’s Kiss, and college literary journals. In 2006, I received the Isabel Winner Miller Award in Creative Writing at Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania.

On occasion, I dabble in entertainment journalism, in the past contributing film reviews to PopMatters and conducting interviews for Planet Fury. Plans for the future include a blog of my own that engages with literature, film, television, and pop culture in a reader-friendly fashion.
