Her compilation of short stories, The Studies for Stories, was published in 1864. Between Stories told to a Child in 1865 and 1871 she wrote numerous other children's stories. One of her novels, Off the Skelligs, was published in four volumes in 1872. Some of her poetry publications: A Rhyming Chronicle of Incidents and Feelings, 1850. Poems, 1863, 1876, 1885. Mopsa, the Fairy, 1869. Some of her poems: "A Cottage in a Chine," "About the Fairies," "Afternoon at a Parsonage," "Brothers, and a Sermon," "High Tide on the Coast of Lincolnshire, 1571," "Like a Laverock in the Lift," "Songs of Seven," "Supper at the Mill," "The Long White Seam," "Wedding Song."
