Thanks for coming to visit my website. Here I’ve collected information about my work that you may find useful.
I’m Professor of English and faculty in the online M.A. in Apologetics at Houston Baptist University, specializing in cultural and imaginative apologetics.
I am also a Fellow of the Word on Fire Institute.
Recently, I spoke at Franciscan University at Steubenville’s Defending the Faith conference on Imaginative Apologetics: you can watch the video of that talk here.
My current writing project is a literary-critical study, Tolkien’s Modern Sources: Middle-earth Beyond the Middle Ages, to be published by Kent State University Press. It has received the 2018 Kilby Research Grant from the Marion E. Wade Center.
I’ve written Apologetics and the Christian Imagination: An Integrated Approach to Defending the Faith (Emmaus Road Publishing) and a memoir, Not God’s Type: An Atheist Academic Lays Down Her Arms (Ignatius Press).
More details on my publications (books, chapters in books, articles, and poetry) can be found on my “Writing” page.
Do please take a look around!
All best wishes,
