Welcome to my website! I am Professor of English and Director of the  M.A. in Cultural Apologetics at Houston Baptist University, an academic, a poet, and a writer — you can find details on all of my work here.

I have written a memoir, Not God’s Type: An Atheist Academic Lays Down Her Arms (Ignatius Press, 2014).

My academic work focuses on imaginative apologetics and on the writings of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Charles Williams. I am the Charles Williams Subject Editor for the Journal of Inklings Studies, and I am currently working on a book on Tolkien and modern fantasy.
