Frontispiece to Hell-Gates Open to All Men (1751)

Welcome to my website. I am a writer, scholar, and copy-editor.

I write weird stories. My short fiction appears or is forthcoming in LightspeedWeird Horror, Post Road, Black Warrior Review, and elsewhere.

My scholarly research focuses on eighteenth-century British literature and culture and has been published in Journal for Early Modern Cultural StudiesSEL Studies in English Literature 1500-1900, and Eighteenth-Century Fiction, among others. I am working on a monograph that explores devils and devilish curiosity in eighteenth-century British literature.
