Nancys initial effort, Responsible Citizenship, a textbook on American politics co-written with her husband, was published in 1923. This was followed shortly by a volume of poetry dedicated to her daughter called A Dinner of Herbs (she had been publishing her poems in various magazines since childhood) , and her first novel, Hazard, which was largely autobiographical. She also wrote a history of newspaper journalism, The Modern Newspaper, in 1930 and an even-handed biography of Aimee Semple MacPherson, Sister Aimee, in 1931. But it was when she went to work for the Oakland Tribune in 1925 that she found her lifes calling. In a retrospective that appeared at the time of her death, she is quoted as saying: I went into newspaper work to enlarge my experience of people as an aid to fiction writing, then I stayed in it for its own sake.
