Refereed Publications

Funny thing: there are actually a number of these, and I get a kick out of writing them. But they're not of interest if you're mostly a YA reader. If, for some reason, you really need to know about them, drop me a line and I'll send you the current list. There are conference presentations and such, too. You can see I always wanted to be a proper academic, but took a wrong turn somewhere.
