I recently completed Mary Elizabeth Braddon and the Victorian Theatre (2016), over five hundred biographies of Victorian actors, managers and others involved in Victorian theatre.
Other works include:
James Townsend Saward, Criminal Barrister:
The True Story of Jim the Penman, a biography of the Victorian barrister
and forger (my great-great-great-great grandfather), who was involved in the
Great Train Robbery of 1855
The Literary Lives of Mary Elizabeth Braddon.
My PhD was on the life and work of Mary Elizabeth Braddon and was awarded by the University of London; my supervisor was Professor Sally Ledger. Some of my Braddon collection can be seen here on my Mary Elizabeth Braddon web pages. My Victorian Photograph Collection, mainly consisting these days of daguerreotypes and ambrotypes, is here. Other interests include Victorian theatre, Victorian photography and Scottish agates.
Some years ago I was working on a section of the website devoted to Victorian advertising - I won't be updating it for the foreseeable future.
