Milestones
About 1849 EMP was born in Buckinghamshire near Stowe. Bibliographic Citation link.
By 13 July 1872 Domestic servant EMP published at her own expense her single known work, The Rose of Avondale, a courtship novel in one volume. Bibliographic Citation link.
The date and place of EMP's death, like the course of her later life, are unknown. She presumably died after, and probably very many years after, her only known publication in 1872.
