A few years later, Ms. Cain found herself in Los Angeles, acting in a variety of television shows and films. However, her heart remained with playwrighting. After moving back to New York, she pursued playwrighting, and her first play was published the night before she married her husband, Craig. Ms. Cain currently lives with her husband and twins, Catherine and Charles, back in her hometown of Brookhaven, where she owns Cain Talent. Her stage adaptations of Aesop's fables are published by Samuel French and include The Tortoise & the Hare, The Woodsmen and the Fairy, The Lion and The Mouse, and The Lovesick Cat.
