I am a PhD candidate in the English Department at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas, where I teach courses in composition. Last year, I served as the Associate Editor of descant,TCU’s literary journal, and I am currently serving as Graduate Lecturer. My academic interests include 20th Century Southern women writers, gender studies, food culture, and creative writing. At the moment, I am in my second year of Ph.D. work.
In addition to my academic work, I have a passion for cooking, long distance running, and bad television. I also enjoy studying early American periodicals and rhetoric. I live in Fort Worth, TX, with my husband, Jay, and our pound puppies, Frank and Zoey.
