Both Clough and Amabel Williams Ellis were prolific writers. Both published autobiographies:
Clough’s first published work was Reconography, a method of memory training for recalling and later sketching landscapes, prepared during the war while Clough was a member of the new Tank Corps, though not published till 1919. After this came many works on architecture, planning and conservation, including these:

Amabel Williams-Ellis was even more prolific than Clough, being a writer by profession when she married, and eventually having more than 70 books to her name. Her range was very wide, from her early work An Anatomy of Poetry, 1922 which is still available today, she went on to write novels, biographies, science books for non-scientists, history books, children’s books including How you Began, which was re-issued recently in Reading and Rebellion, an anthology of Radical Writing for Children in 2018. There were social works and pamphlets during WW2, volumes of Fairy Stories, collections of Science Fiction stories.
Amabel had an interest in women’s lives as evidenced for example in her book Women in War Factories, and in her novels too. Some of her work has been recently re-appraised by Jayne Sharrat who has a very interesting post on the novel The Big Firm on the Neglected Books website, you can read it via this link: neglectedbooks.com/?tag=amabel-williams-ellis.Jayne has the following recommendations, and this without even touching on her collections of Fairy Stories:
Noah's Ark - because this novel is about the tension between having your own identity, and wanting to get married. It also has a childbirth scene in it which is radical for the time;The Big Firm - for everything mentioned in the blogpost. Women in War Factories – a fascinating glimpse into life for working women at the time.Is a Woman's Place in the Home? - Labour discussion series pamphlet, and shows that she thought that the LP would bring in equal pay for women and was arguing for it (they actually didn't do it until the 1970s of course). The Art of Being a Woman - an early articulation of how women practically navigate life, still too relevant!The Art of Being a Parent - was arguing counter to the expert opinion at the time, which was that mother's should sacrifice themselves for their children's needs completely.
