About Me

My research interests are in women’s writing (particularly the inter-war period), historical fiction, Modernism, Welsh writing in English, and the Gothic. 

My most recent book, Christopher Meredith (University of Wales Press, 2018), is the first full-length study of the poetry and prose of one of Wales’s most talented and versatile contemporary writers. 

Other monographs include Female Gothic Histories: gender, history and the Gothic (University of Wales Press, 2013), The Woman’s Historical Novel: British Women Writers, 1900-2000 (Palgrave, 2005), and Sisters and Rivals in British Women's Fiction, 1914-39 (Macmillan, 2000).  

Currently I am working on a study of Modernism and historical fiction entitled Writing the Past: Modernism and Historical Fiction.

I am UoA leader for the English Research Group. 

My teaching includes the first year module, ‘Reading/Writing Women’, a second year module on ‘Modernism’, and the third year modules ‘Gothic Literature’ and ‘Historical Fictions: Women Writing the Past.’
