Contemporary Kizzy longs to be a normal, popular teenager and forgets the rules she learned as a child and is seduced by a goblin in disguise. Discussions of nineteenth-century fiction must, of necessity, define their chronological boundaries with a bit more care than might at first seem obvious, or necessary. In addition to Phantasmion, these include several volumes of unpublished poetry and the popular poetry collection Pretty Lessons in Verse (1834), from which "January Brings the Snow" is frequently reprinted in nursery rhyme books.

She has produced blended-genre works such as the fantasy/western novel Territory (2007) and the fantasy/de- tective novel Finder: A Nouel of the Border- lands (1994).
