She collaborated with her brother-in-law ‘Henry Seton Merriman’ on From Wisdom Court (1893) and helped his widow to edit his collected works. She published translations from the French, biographical studies of French subjects such as The Friends of Voltaire (1906), and novels including Early-Victorian: A Village Chronicle (1910), about heartbreak and restricted lives in a remote village, the similar Love Laughs Last (1919), and Matthew Hargraves (1914), whose hero comes to regret his cold, loveless marriage.
