She has written feature and television scripts (Stand Accused, Halfway Somewhere Else), published fiction and essays, and works as a freelance consultant for film production companies and individuals.

Her sixth motion picture screenplay currently in development, Danielpour is working on her second libretto for composer Bruce Wolosoff, an adaptation of the children’s book The Great Good Thing.
