She has spent her adult years in many places, doing the same thing, only now she writes her stories down on paper. Adults as well as children will recognize such Blume titles as: Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret, Superfudge, Blubber, Just As Long As We're Together and Forever. She has also written the novels Wifey, Smart Women, and Summer Sisters.
