Editing Work


The Palgrave Handbook of Shakespeare’s Queens is due for publication in August 2018. Co-edited with Valerie Schutte, this 25-chapter collection ranges from broad-based studies of queenship and stagecraft in Shakespeare’s plays to analyses of individual queens, both historical and fictional, as characters. Our contributors include scholars from a variety of fields–history, literature, theatre, and fine arts–and from across the world.

Becoming: Essays on NBC’s Hannibal is currently under contract with Syracuse University Press. This collection, co-edited with EJ Nielsen, features thirteen chapters and an interview with one of the series’ screenwriters, Nick Antosca. The chapters offer readings of the NBC series (2012-2015) from a truly interdisciplinary perspective, including psychology, criminology, literature, film studies, food studies, and fan studies.

I am also doing dramaturgical editing of Shakespeare’s Henry VI, Part II for Brave Spirits Theatre in Alexandria, VA, in preparation for their 2020 repertory production of all eight of Shakespeare’s history plays.



I have worked as an editor both formally and informally since I was a graduate student. My first editing job was in 2005, proofreading and checking all the references for Anna A. Grotans’ monograph Reading in Medieval St. Gall (Cambridge UP, 2006)
