Co-PI of NEH-funded digital humanities project, author of DEATH’S SUMMER COAT (E&T UK, Pegasus US), exploring cultural approaches to death and dying, and co-editor of UNNATURAL REPRODUCTIONS (Cambria), a collection on “monstrous” birth across time—and genre.

When my spouse died suddenly, I learned how much she loved me. When I couldn’t make decisions, I didn’t have to. Everything was planned. Thank you, Cleveland Memorial Society for helping us be prepared.
