She enjoyed a two year run in Jerry Mayer’s Aspirin & Elephants at the Santa Monica Playhouse. Nonie earned an Emmy for writing and performing “Oh, Art!” for PBS in Chicago. She has appeared in soaps, sit-coms, and hidden camera shows. Television writing credits include: Candid Camera, CBS’ Say What, Late Date and The Barkers.
