Sabrina Davis joined the Nassau Community College English department in 2009.  She completed her BA in History from CUNY Baruch College, her MA in English with a concentration in Creative Writing from Florida Atlantic University, and then a PhD in the American Studies Department at Saint Louis University. While her MA thesis is a piece of creative nonfiction entitled Microwavable Dinners, Professor Davis’s current creative interest is far removed from reality and is situated somewhere between science fiction, fantasy, and historical fiction.
