About Me

I hold an MA in Victorian literature and a PhD, both from the University of Leeds. I have published widely on the Brontes’ lives, literature, and legacies. I have also published on literary tourism, and am co-curator of the Placing the Author WordPress site, which features a collection of ‘postcard’ reflections from present-day literary tourists to sites associated with nineteenth-century authors, as well as an interactive map of these sites. I’m currently working on a project about Henry Siddons, theatre, and psychology.
