Biography and Research Interests

I am an academic writing tutor and part-time PhD student in Glyndwr University, Wrexham and part-time librarian at Wrexham Library. I research and write about comics and graphic novels. I’m currently focusing primarily on the work of Alan Moore, both for a book on Moore’s seminal issues of Swamp Thing for Sequart Books and for my PhD, which focuses on intertextuality, sex and gender in his work. I hold a BA Hons in English, History and Media Studies, and an MA in English Literary Culture (1880 – 1920), for which I completed a dissertation focusing on the early science fiction of HG Wells. I also hold postgraduate qualifications in teaching and librarianship.

Research interests: Comics of all kinds, but particularly the work of Alan Moore and his collaborators.
