Born on a September 16th, she wrote three plays before her sixteenth birthday before giving up writing forever to become a missionary. Critics thought of them as "groundbreaking" and "baffling." Of her plays she said only, "I write what is given to me to write, and the actors act what is given to them to act." She died in 1974 of sepsis after falling on a cactus. There's no word as to whether or not the cactus converted.
