EMB 's fourteen books, published between 1910 and 1931, are mostly novels, and most of them appeared under the pseudonym of John Travers. She is remembered, if at all, for those set in British India, but all of them are rare today and difficult to get hold of. Her interest in Indian women (especially their education and British women's relations with them) and the Indian Army issued in a pamphlet and a number of letters to The Times, and she was a leading contributor to that newspaper's Woman's Supplement. She also edited correspondence of Eleanor Butler and Sarah Ponsonby (since Ponsonby had connections with her family).
