They were both active in theater, writing, directing, and acting in plays. They married in 1938 and had a son. They became members of the Mañana Literary Society formed by Robert Heinlein, which met at his home near Hollywood to discuss their interests in fantasy and science fiction writing. Other members of the group included L. Ron Hubbard and William Anthony Parker White -- better known by his pen name, Anthony Boucher. In 1949, Annette McComas, her husband, Anthony Boucher, and his wife Phyllis co-founded The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction and worked on it together until 1955.
