I took my undergraduate degree in English and Art History with the Open University, where I then did a Masters in the Eighteenth Century Novel. My PhD was taken in the Department of Drama and Theatre Studies at Royal Holloway, University of London, my research and thesis being entitled ''Crowded nightly' popular entertainment outside London during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

I worked from Royal Holloway as Assistant Editor on Nineteenth Century Theatre for four years, and have been working on a major AHRC project 'An Alternative History of Victorian Entertainment' for three years. I contribute regularly to radio and television.
