Her first romantic novel Pocketful of Poses appeared in 1923, the same year she had a children's book published, with her brother Dillwyn as illustrator. Their collaboration titled Knee-High to a Grasshopper was followed by another book for children in 1924, Lustres.

In 1925 she was a runn-up for the Newbery Medal for The Dream Coach, the third collaboration with her brother. That same year, her novel The Perennial Bachelor was the eighth best-selling book for the entire year according to the New York Times and won the Harper Prize from her publisher, Harper & Brothers.
