EB published three novels (all either early or late in her writing career, which spans the nineteenth and twentieth centuries), a religious work, and a travel book, but she made her name as the author of biographies and other scholarly work about several prominent men with whom she was personally connected.
Her fiction is easily confused with that of Lily Adams Beck (also known as Eliza Louisa Moresby Beck ) who published under the pseudonym of E. Barrington.
