My goal is to make each of the writers I counsel into the most effective and engaging storytellers they can be. Few endeavors gratify me more than helping authors realize their own ambitions, discover or fine-tune their voice, and shape the stories they wish to share in the most persuasive manner possible, so that their readers will feel as invested in the narrative as the author is in crafting it.
I am candid, and sometimes I will share hard truths, but never with anything but an eye towards identifying the the most promising way forward.

The University of Alabama Press
I presently serve as the editor-in-chief and humanities editor at The University of Alabama Press where I oversee a publication program of 55 to 60 new titles a year in the fields of southern and civil rights history, literary studies, American religious history, theatre history, law and legal studies, African American studies, and early modern and Renaissance studies, among other fields, including original fiction and memoir.
My job is to actively recruit promising new authors in highly demanding fields, assess their work, persuade the best of them to sign contracts with us, guide them through the submission and review process, and develop their manuscripts for maximum clarity and impact—to transform them into effective storytellers, in short.
