I received a B.A. in English from Witternberg University, a M.A. in English from UMass-Boston, a M.A. in Science Fiction Studies from University of Liverpool, and a Ph.D. in English from Michigan State University. I'm a Professor of English at the Lake Campus, where I've been teaching since 2006. In addition to hundreds of stories and essays, I have published over 20 books of fiction, plays and criticism. I serve as unit director for the humanites and social sciences programs, reviews editor for the academic journal Extrapolation, managing editor of Guide Dog Books, and editor-in-chief of Anti-Oedipus Press.
