She wrote for Orson Welles and Lillian Gish on the Emmy Award-winning series The Silent Years and for Henry Fonda, Jack Lemmon, Vincent Price and Claire Bloom on the PBS series Anyone for Tennyson?

She adapted Carlos Fuentes' novel Where the Air is Clear for the screen and scripted the soon-to-be-filmed golf comedy Dog Leg Right.
