EDP had a successful career as a popular playwright (few of whose dramas reached print) and novelist. She also wrote short stories for periodicals, and a single story for children which had great success a generation after her death. After being active through the last decade of the nineteenth and first decade of the twentieth century, she published almost nothing after her second marriage except for editing a collection of colonial memoirs. She is often confused with her better-known daughter, who wrote as E. M. Delafield and whose second given name was Elizabeth.
