Nora Ephron was an American journalist, playwright, screenwriter, novelist, columnist, director and producer. She is mostly known for the romantic comedies that she wrote and directed, like, ‘Sleepless in Seattle’, ‘When Harry Met Sally’, ‘You’ve Got Mail’, etc. She started out her creative journey as a journalist for the New York Post and worked there for the initial six years of her career, which helped her in finding her voice to finally be able to pen down her bold, eccentric and satirical ideas into famous essays and novels. But it was Ephron’s leap into Hollywood with her distinctive talent for screenwriting that established her talent for the world to notice. Her first script ‘Silkwood’ paved the way for her future success in the field of screenwriting. But she did not just restrict herself to that; with ‘This is My Life’ she entered into the creative and elaborate world of film making. She also co-authored the Drama Desk Award–winning theatrical production ‘Love, Loss, and What I Wore’ with her sister Delia and in 2013, Ephron received a posthumous Tony Award nomination for Best Play for her play ‘Lucky Guy’.
