As a researcher, teacher, and editor, I am interested in everything Victorian. I recently published two books, Literary Celebrity, Gender, and Victorian Authorship, 1850–1914 (U Delaware P, 2011) and Terrifying Transformations: An Anthology of Werewolf Fiction, 1838-1896 (Valancourt, 2012). I serve as editor of Victorian Periodicals Review, an international scholarly journal dedicated to research on the Victorian press. I also serve as co-editor of the two-volume Ashgate Companion to Nineteenth-Century British Periodicals (forthcoming, 2015-16). My other current research and teaching interests include Victorian women writers, Victorian drama, working-class poetry, the Brontës, Harriet Martineau, Charles Dickens, detective fiction, Gothic novels, and professional editing.
