Here’s a brief bio: As a Professor of American literature at Louisiana Tech University, I specialize in post-1900 fiction, literature of the South, and Louisiana writers. I also teach an awesome science fiction class. I have published essays, reviews, book chapters, and a book on figures such as Walker Percy, William Faulkner, Cormac McCarthy, Robert Penn Warren, Carson McCullers, Ralph Ellison, Richard Ford, Lewis Nordan, John Kennedy Toole, Thomas Bell, Charles Olson, and Stuart Dybek. My writing has appeared in the Mississippi Quarterly, the Southern Quarterly, the Faulkner Journal, the South Central Review, and the Arkansas Review; in books by Louisiana State University Press and the University of Alabama Press; and in a digital edition by NetLibrary, which is accessible online through most university libraries. My work has been quoted in many scholarly books, including ones by the university presses of Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Louisiana State, Wesleyan, and Oxford. I have taught at Louisiana Tech for over 15 years, but have also taught at Texas A&M University, Louisiana State University, and Alcorn State University.
