Writer-producer Delia Ephron spent the first part of her adult life denying herself of becoming what she felt she was always destined to do: write. Though her mother and father, Henry and Phoebe Ephron, were successful playwrights and screenwriters, and sister Nora later blazed her own path through Hollywood, writing "When Harry Met Sally" (1989) and "Sleepless in Seattle" (1993), Ephron avoided the family trade. But at 31, she finally caved to pressure-mainly from Nora-when she wrote a series of essays for the New York Times Book Review. Eventually she segued into screenwriting and worked with sister on several film projects, becoming the quieter half of a powerful Hollywood team.
