Biography

After spending an action-packed gap year in the American Midwest working in a paint store and riding the Greyhound, I managed to gain education at the universities of Warwick (BA) and Oxford (D.Phil). My doctorate was on the early Republican Party in Iowa which oddly failed to become a bestseller. I moved to Sussex in 2007 after teaching American history at Sheffield University for seventeen years. I am a fellow of the Royal Historical Society and a disillusioned supporter of Aston Villa FC.
