Mona Kent (1909-1990) was a prolific radio and TV script writer who, from 1940 to 1951, wrote every episode of the radio soap opera "Portia Faces Life," which followed the travails of a young, widowed mother who is also a successful attorney.
Kent also created several other radio soap operas, contributed scripts to TV's early science fiction hit "Captain Video & His Video Rangers," and wrote innumerable stories, adaptations, and treatments for both radio and television. She is also the author of a novel, "Mirror, Mirror on the Wall."
