University of Alberta

I have a background in literary linguistics (stylistics), narratology, discourse analysis and digital media. My main interests are literary gaming and other forms of digital fiction, and I'm currently working on projects looking at how readers respond to and process digital fiction, and emotive discourse patterns in videogame paratexts. I've published books on literary hypertext, literary games and gaming, analyzing digital fiction, the language of gaming, language in the media, and virtual world studies.
