Her screenwriting credits include Star Trek: The Next Generation (co-writer of the sixth-season episode "Rascals") and Spiral Zone, as well as development of various children's series for CBS, NBC and independent networks.

As a visual effects director, Botsford has enjoyed the opportunity to play techno-junkie while telling people like George Clooney how to stand in front of a bluescreen. As a producer, she worked on various television series such as the CBS series Harts of the West and Nightgames. Her visual effects work include Nightmare of Elm Street VI, Tank Girl, From Dusk Till Dawn, Terminator 2 and many independent films. As Associate Producer for D.I.C.

In addition to Botsford's Stargate: SG-1 novels, The Four Dragons (2010) and The Drift (2011), her recently completed written work includes the SF web series EPILOGUE (, the novel Critical Past and the comic book series The Fracture. As head of the Screenwriting Program at Missouri State University, she attempts to corrupt her students' minds on a daily basis while educating them on the finer points of storytelling.
