Eleanor Nicholson Eleanor Bourg Nicholson, the resident Victorian literature teacher at Homeschool Connections, survived high school homeschooling decades ago when it was even less culturally accepted. In addition to scholarly pursuits, she occasionally strays into fiction, including her epistolary novella, The Letters of Magdalen Montague (Kaufmann Publishing, 2011), and her Victorian vampire novel, A Bloody Habit (Ignatius Press, 2018). She is editor of several Ignatius Critical Editions volumes, and collaborated with other editors to provide footnotes for numerous others. A former assistant executive editor for Dappled Things, she is an assistant editor for the Saint Austin Review (StAR). Her work has appeared in the National Catholic Register and Touchstone, as well as with First Things and The Catholic Thing. By day, Mrs. Nicholson is the Director of Religious Education at St. Thomas Aquinas University Parish, serving the University of Virginia (her alma mater), and, with her husband, Homeschool Connections’ philosophy instructor Dr. Sam Nicholson, homeschools their four children. By night, she reads the Victorians, writes Gothic novels, and cares for small children.
