About Margaret Seven Wellman
Margaret (Maggie) Seven Wellman is the youngest child of veteran film director William A. Wellman, and Busby Berkeley dancer and actor, Dorothy Coonan.
Raised in Hollywood on a rambling ranch-style estate built in 1944, her childhood memories of family are inescapably entwined in the rooms and landscape on Barrington Avenue, the subject of her first memoir.
Ms. Wellman worked for 10 years as an actress in the 70's-early 80's, appearing in over 20 features and television shows, including co-starring with Jeff Bridges and Sam Waterston in the film Rancho Deluxe. In 1983, she retired from the motion picture business and moved to Ojai, California to raise a family. While there, Ms. Wellman has worked as a photographer, a technology coordinator for the local public elementary school, and acted as executive director for the Ojai Film Festival in 2005-2006.
Ms. Wellman continues to live in Ojai with her husband, Dan, surrounded by family, friends, and the beautiful valley.
