I have just acquired a new interest...

...by being introduced to Jane Webb Loudon, who wrote science fiction (The Mummy) and gardening books and was a friend of Charles Dickens. Thank you NickiAnne.

Thanks for this. I've heard the name but never read anything of hers. The Mummy does look interesting.

BTW, on following the link to the wikipedia entry, I couldn't help being amused by this quote (the asterisks for emphasis are mine): "Among other foreshadowings of things that were to be, was a steam plough, and this attracted the attention of Mr. John C. Loudon, whose numerous and valuable works on gardening, agriculture, etc., are so well known, led to an acquaintance, which *terminated* in a matrimonial connection."
