She attended the University of Chicago in the 1960s, then returned to study and achieved a degree in anthropology from the University of Illinois in 1981.

In her lifetime, Phyllis has published six novels and about three-dozen shorter works in the science fiction, fantasy, and horror genres, as well as a popular nonfiction book on treating arthritis. Her stories have been nominated twice for the Hugo Award, three times for the Nebula Award.

This started at the Indiana University Writers Conference in 1977, assisting famous author Roger Zelazny, and later in other workshops and community colleges.

In 1999, she received an "Excellence in Teaching" Award from the this institution.
