JENNIFER CARNELL

Author of The Literary Lives of Mary Elizabeth Braddon.

I recently completed a biography of James Townsend Saward (Jim the Penman), the Victorian barrister and forger, who was involved in the Great Train Robbery of 1855.
James Townsend Saward, Criminal Barrister: The True Story of Jim the Penman

My PhD was on the life and work of Mary Elizabeth Braddon. Some of my Braddon collection can be seen here. Victorian Photographs are here:

My current research interests are Victorian theatre (mainly 1850s and 1860s), and I am working on a book about the actors and theatre managers who worked with Braddon.

Some years ago I was working on a section of the website devoted to Victorian advertising, but it turned out to be a big undertaking and because of a heavy workload I won't be updating it very often for the foreseeable future.
