My book Mad at School: Rhetorics of Mental Disability and Academic Life (University of Michigan Press) won the Outstanding Book Award from CCCC. Reviews, annotations and commentary have appeared in the Literature, Arts, and Medicine Database; Disability Studies Quarterly; the Social Science Research Network; and Serendip Studio.
Other writing appears in Ms. magazine, Bitch: Feminist Response to Pop Culture, Inside Higher Education, Creative Nonfiction, College Composition and Communication, Profession, and Disability Studies Quarterly. I hold a PhD in rhetoric/composition from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, an MFA in fiction writing from the University of Michigan, and a BA from Amherst College.
