I’m a medievalist and fiction writer, working to renovate forgotten stories.
My current novel project, The Lost Heirs of Perceforest, is based on parts of the medieval romance Perceforest, which preserves legends of pre-Arthurian Britain. Click on the tab at the top of the page to learn more.
I am an associate professor of French and Women’s Studies at Penn State Altoona, where I also teach courses in medieval literature and culture. I’m the author of Poet Heroines in Medieval French Narrative: Gender and Fictions of Literary Creation (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012), and my scholarship has appeared in Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies, French Forum, Vivarium, Women in French Studies, and elsewhere.
When I’m not hiding in a library, I live on a farm with two humans, a dog, three cats, six chickens, seventeen pigeons, and approximately 80,000 honeybees.
I am represented by Valerie Noble of Donaghy Literary.
