EP is a skilled though obscure novelist and essayist publishing in the 1810s, whose works were well received and have much to offer today's reader. She was articulately concerned about the craft of novel-writing, and evidently serious about her career.
EP published with Egerton a volume of essays written at various periods, entitled Important Trifles: Chiefly Appropriate to Females on their Entrance into Society.
