As a critic and as an academic, I'm especially interested in exploring the politics of entertainment; in work by women, people of color, and queer people; and in the expansion of diversity and inclusion in literature, movies and TV.
In 2020 I've written about books and authors for a variety of popular pubs and sites including BookPage, Book Riot, Shondaland, and The Grio. Here's where to find those articles, interviews, and reviews.
