My Books


the face of baseballThe Face of Baseball is my short story chapbook available from WhiskeyPaper Press. It’s a collection of linked stories about the way baseball and its heroes thread themselves through the loves and losses of three women in unexpected ways. For the characters in the small town where the stories takes place, baseball is the beating pulse of their everyday lives. You can buy it online here or at Village Lights Bookstore in Madison, Indiana.

In February 2014, the second edition of my textbook, Questioning Gender:  A Sociological Exploration, will be coming out from Pine Forge/Sage Press.  It’s called questioning gender because my goal in my course and in the book itself is to help students ask some interesting questions about gender, rather than just providing ready-made answers.  The book draws on queer theory, intersectionality, and a global and historical approach to help students see how sex and gender are socially constructed.
