Her first published writing appeared in 1848. Without her knowledge, her husband sent one of her poems to a magazine, which published it. She then wrote and published two novels under the pen name Caroline Thomas, subsequently using her real name.
She died in Rutland, Vermont, and is buried in that town's Evergreen Cemetery.
