Noong panahong siya ay may-akda para sa mga palabas sa radyo, madaming nakatuklas sa kanyang nakaraan kung saan ay mas interesado sila sa kanyang buhay bilang isang dating batang aktres kaysa sa kanyang mga akda. Muli siyang nagpalit ng pangalan bilang si Diana Serra Cary matapos siyang lumipat sa Katolisismo at ang kanyang pagpapakasal kay Bob Cary noong 1954.[2]

Kinalaunan ay nakilala siya sa pagiging manunulat at sa kanyang adbokasiya para sa mga kapwa batang aktor, kung saan ay sumulat siya ng libro tunkgol sa kanyang buhay at karera na pinamagatang What Ever Happened to Baby Peggy: The Autobiography of Hollywood's Pioneer Child Star, at Jackie Coogan: The World's Boy King: A Biography of Hollywood's Legendary Child Star, isapang akda tungkol sa kapwa batang aktor na si Jackie Coogan.
