She writes both fiction and non-fiction about topics including sexuality and the role of women throughout history. Her second novel ''The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue'' was a New York Times Best Seller and earned a Stonewall Book Award for its portrayal of a bisexual young man in 18th-century Europe.
