Writer & Historian
Emily is an author & historian specialising in the long eighteenth century, especially the trials and tribulations of romantic (and not-so-romantic) relationships in England. Her work takes her from the chat up lines of Restoration libertines to Georgian sex manuals and the novels of Jane Austen.
She has appeared on TV as a historical consultant and talking head, and her work has featured in the media on topics ranging from royal weddings commentary to the history of the female orgasm and the historical accuracy of sex in ITV's Downton Abbey.
Her new book, The Fall of the House of Byron,
is due for publication by John Murray in
April 2020 and is available for pre-order now!
