  About Me
  The Novel


Thank you for checking into my Web page. We can praise my former student and Webmaster par excellence Scott Lawson for all the good parts of this site. The not-so-good parts are, alas, probably mine, as they most often are.

Right now, I am an Associate Professor of Journalism and English and the Director of the Journalism Program at the University at Albany, where I have been teaching since 1984. I am also a published novelist, now working on my second.

Use the menu to the left to learn more about me about how a native Texan landed in Upstate New York, about my teaching and research interests, about my historical novel and other publications in the academic and popular fields, about my film history dissertation, and more.

And please, visit even leave a comment or two at either or both of my blogs:

If I may steal from Garrison Keillor (I think he got this from someone else, too): "Be well, do good work, and keep in touch."

I would enjoy hearing from you at:
