CC is a fairly conventional novelist of the early nineteenth century. Her seven novels have historically realised settings (often in continental Europe), and happy endings for virtuous upper-class characters. The lower classes (often Irish) provide comic relief, until they engage in rebellion, when they arouse horror. She may probably be the author of a play performed in 1793 as well.
