    From Lenona@21:1/5 to All on Thu Aug 17 15:17:42 2023
    Her birthday was on Aug 11th.

    (Not to be confused with the much younger filmmaker.)

    She was born in NYC. The last address I have for her is New Haven, Connecticut.

    One popular novel of hers is "The Haunted Dollhouse" (1982).
