Tosi (Palgrave Macmillan, 2011) and “Anne of Denmark and the Court Masque: Displaying and Authoring Queenship,” in The Emblematic Queen: Extra-Literary Representations of Early Modern Queenship, edited by D. Barrett-Graves (Palgrave Macmillan 2013). Her latest articles are “The Protestant Diary and the Act of Prayer,” in Prayer and Performance in Early Modern English Literature: Gesture, Word and Devotion, edited by J. W. Sterrett (Cambridge U P, 2018), and "Early Modern Diaries" in Bloomsbury History: Theory and Method. Section: Engaging with Sources, edited by Tracey Loughran (Online Resource, Bloomsbury, 2021).
