Beetlejuice Wiki

Katherine Lawrence (December 11, 1954, San Bernardino, California – March 25, 2004, near Tucson, Arizona) was a television series screenwriter and a short story science fiction and children's non-fiction educational books and video game writer. She's also one of the writers of Beetlejuice: The Animated Series.


Her name was actually "Kathy Selbert" and she chose her writing name because of her love for T. E. Lawrence and Jerome Lawrence. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in the English language from the University of Washington in Seattle and suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome. In 1996, she was nominated for Outstanding Script by the Writers Guild of America for "Icebound", an episode of Hypernauts, a live-action science fiction series.

On March 27, 2004, her body was found at San Pedro River in Arizona, along with a suicide note. Her ashes were spread over Mount Lemmon, which was her favorite area.
