Short biography: 

My research interests are digital literature, narrative theory and stylistics. My monograph, The Possible Worlds of Hypertext Fiction, develops and supplements Possible Worlds Theory for its application to hypertext fiction. The text includes analyses of four canonical hypertext fiction works and also offers a theoretical evaluation of Possible Worlds Theory. In my current work, I am developing a number of other narratological and literary linguistic frameworks for the analysis of digital fiction including cognitive poetic and unnatural narratological approaches. I am the principal investigator of the Digital Fiction International Network (funded by The Leverhulme Trust Jan 2009 - Jan 2010). The network provides an arena for a new generation of scholars to collaborate on integral theoretical and analytical issues within digital fiction research. Within that project, I am working on a number of collaborative publications which include, 'Second-Person Narration in Digital Fiction' (with Dr Astrid Ensslin at the University of Bangor) and 'Close Reading Digital Fiction' (with Dr Astrid Ensslin at the University of Bangor, Dr Hans Rustad at the Hedmark University and David Ciccoricco at the University of Otago).
