Birth Name: Selina Bunbury
Pseudonym: the Author of Early Recollections, A Visit to my Birth-Place, etc.
Used Form: Miss S. Bunbury
SB was a versatile author of both fiction and non-fiction, much of it set in her native Ireland although she later made her home in England. Her writings, published over six decades in the mid-nineteenth century, display a loving and respectful preoccupation with female characters and themes; none of them has been much valued by critics.Her oeuvre includes about ten travel narratives (some autobiographical, some fictionalized to varying degrees, covering many countries of Europe), about a dozen volumes of religious children's and young adults' fiction, dozens of stories in periodicals (usually anonymous, which makes their number difficult to estimate), two historical biographies, at least five fictional or semi-autobiographical early works set in Ireland, and a handful of other novels, short-story collections, and miscellaneous writings including Protestant polemic.
