Nora Ephron was born in New York in 1941 and raised in California. She is well-known as a journalist, novelist, and screenwriter. After graduating from Wellesley College in 1962 Ephron began her career as a journalist with the New York Post, where she remained until 1968. Her popularity grew and she began freelance writing, contributing articles and columns to Esquire and New York. In 1970 she published Wallflower at the Orgy, a collection of essays, and five years later followed with another collection called Crazy Salad: Some Things About Women. Ephron has also achieved success as a screenwriter, with such scripts as Silkwood (1983), Heartburn (1986), When Harry Met Sally (1989), Sleepless in Seattle (1993), and You've Got Mail (1998). Silkwood, When Harry Met Sally, and Sleepless in Seattle were all nominated for Academy Awards. Ephron divorced her first husband, the author Dan Greenburg, and married journalist Carl Bernstein; she was divorced from Bernstein in 1976. They have two children.
