MacIver was best known for her novel THE FROG POND published by George Braziller in 1961, which was inspired by her experience with psychoanalysis. She was also the author of THE EXQUISITE THING (1968), MERCY (1977) and THE GLIMPSE (1984). She was co-author of a play, AMERICAN ROYALTY with Richard Haase.
Some biographical sources state that Scott (MacIver) attended the Johns Hopkins School of Journalism, but no such school exists and there is no record of her attendance at Johns Hopkins. It is possible that she might have obtained permission to audit classes, but no official record of being enrolled in a degree program exists.
MacIver died on June 15, 1999 at her home in New York.
