My book-in-progress is a “survival guide” for parents of kids and teens with mental health disorders, to be published by Rowman & Littlefield. (When? TBD, stay tuned.)
I’m also working, at the speed of snails, on a collection of essays about everything from parenting a child with mental illness to learning to embrace living small. Not to mention marrying a son of Nazis. Oh, and contracting a disease called Animal Madness. Yeah, that, too.
My scholarly articles can be found in Studies in English Literature, Studies in the Novel, Victorian Poetry, and Pedagogy.
