Who am I? I’m an English professor at the California State University, Chico. I teach courses on a wide range of subjects, including Victorian literature (my primary research specialty) and children’s literature. 

I also write literature for children. For now, my main focus is on picture books. (No, I don’t illustrate. I wish I could!) My first picture book, Spooky and the Gargoyle, is scheduled to launch on October 8.
