Ann Gomersall's known publications comprise eighteenth-century novels of an unusually bourgeois tendency, and a long nineteenth-century poem. She wrote because she needed money. Bibliographer James Raven points out that some of her characters change their names in midstream, suggesting haste and inattention on either her part or her publisher's. Bibliographic Citation link.
