NON-FICTION BOOKS

My non-fiction books include references, study guides, information books, and literary criticism. Click on a cover to see it more closely. It's been my pleasure to research and write these non-fiction books. Most of them also contain biographical material; the biographical sections are just not as long as a full-length book. All of these books are available for order from your favorite booksellers, including those online: BN.com, Amazon.com, and Powells.com.

CRITICAL COMPANION TO FLANNERY O'CONNOR: A LITERARY REFERENCE TO HER LIFE AND WORK (Facts On File, 2007). This is my most recent book.
A STUDENT'S GUIDE TO JANE AUSTEN (Enslow, 2007). Austen is a classic, of course. What was so interesting to explore was how timely she is to our present day, both as a woman and an author.
A STUDENT'S GUIDE TO ROBERT FROST (Enslow, 2006). The rivalry between Emily Dickinson fans and Robert Frost fans in Amherst, Massachusetts, is a fun aspect of working on both poets. When I go to Amherst, I stay at the place where Frost lived when he taught at Amherst College.

FIRST PEOPLES: THE MOHAWKS OF NORTH AMERICA (Lerner, 2001). My first book publication! I researched this book, in part, by visiting a Mohawk community on the St. Lawrence River. The book is part of a series on First Peoples of the world.
COMPANION TO AMERICAN CHILDREN'S PICTURE BOOKS (Greenwood, 2005). This reference grew out of my enjoyment of the picture books I read to my children when they were small. Picture books are a unique artform in literature, combining storytelling in both verbal and visual forms.
