I received my Ph.D. from the University of Utah in nineteenth-century British literature and British Romantic studies. My books include Fools of Time, a novel forthcoming from Texas Review Press, Humor and Transgression in Peacock, Shelley and Byron, which won the Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association Book Award (1992), The Student Guide to Writing about Literature (2005), and a collection of scholarly essays on Romanticism and Pleasure (2010), co-edited with Michelle Faubert; I have also published numerous articles in top journals in my field, including Keats-Shelley Journal, The Wordsworth Circle, Gothic Studies and Studies in Romanticism. My most recent scholarly publications center on Romanticism and addiction. I enjoy teaching a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses in nineteenth-century British literature, eighteenth-century literature, Romanticism, Gothic literature, and Introduction to Literary Studies. I currently serve as the Director of Literature at UTEP and hold a seat on the Executive Board of the International Conference on Romanticism.
