During the 1960s she simultaneously wrote both Guiding Light (1952) & Another World (1964). This led to a few minor problems such as in the 445th episode of Another World (1964) she wrote in the script that the scene takes place "in the coffee shop of Cedar's Hospital" - Cedar's Hospital is the fictional hospital on Guiding Light (1952).
When she went into labor and had to go to the hospital to deliver one of her children she brought her Dictaphone along so that she could continue working.
Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!
Once we were plotting an episode, and I looked down and saw that it was the 6,000th episode of 'All My Children.' So I said to the group, 'Hey, let's knock off and I'll take you to lunch.' When I had come back, for the first time in my life, I had forgotten that I was to have a telephone interview. So I called the reporter...and apologized profusely and explained that we discovered it was our 6,000th episode we were writing. She did some figuring and said: 'Do you realize that if you'd been writing nighttime, you would have been working for 240 years!'
