Henrietta Palmer (who later wrote as JSW) attempted to publish her first 'literary venture', a story entitled either "Clotilde's Vengeance" or "The Story of the French Revolution", at the age of fourteen.
Spring 1885 Bootles' Baby: A Story of the Scarlet Lancers
, probably JSW's best-known work, was serialised in The Graphic
magazine. It appeared in volume form the same year.
1891 to September 1894
JSW launched and edited an illustrated penny weekly magazine. It was initially called Golden Gates
, but this title was felt to be too religious, and was eventually changed to Winter's Weekly
It appears that JSW's last original novel was Miss Peggy: The Story of a Very Modern Girl
, published posthumously the year after her death.
