She is the author of Ruling Women: Queenship and Gender in Anglo-Saxon Literature (University of Notre Dame Press, 2006), which has been hailed for its innovative yet painstaking methodology, elegant style, and forceful demonstration of the need to look at Anglo-Saxon material for insights on the deployment of gender in response to social crises.
