In 2019, her article ‘‘The Bloodlust of Elizabeth Báthory: From the Brothers Grimm to American Horror Story’’ was included in the book A Shadow Within: Evil in Fantasy and Science Fiction by Luna Press Publishing. In 2020, her article “Falling in Love with an Artificial Being: E. T. A Hoffmann’s The Sandman in relation to Philip K.
