Wonderful writer for CBSRMT for both original and adapted material. One of my favorites!

I met her in the late seventy's when she spoke at my elementary school library. I was an OTR fan at age 10 and meeting her was a thrill for me. She was so very sweet. I recall she shared scripts with us and we did a scene or two. This was in Kent Connecticut. A vivid memory for me.
