Alayne is interested in technology and its impact on our society--her English 102 class is called Considering the Future and is designed to encourage students to consider our technologically mediated lives.
Alayne has presented regularly at the International Conference for the Fantastic in the Arts, and presented her paper "Post-Apunkalypse Fury Tales: George Miller, Mad Max, and the End of Childhood" at the 37th meeting in March 2016.
Alayne's poems have appeared in Poetry Quarterly, Verse Wisconsin, the Front Range Review and others. She currently keeps a blog (www.caryatisfarm.wordpress.com) to keep track of the process of building a house on a 6-acre farmette in Sheboygan county.
