Genevieve Grogan was born in Cyget, Ohio, in 1894 to Michael Grogan and Mary King. She was raised in Ohio as part of a big family, and they were all living in Los Angeles by 1920.
In 1926, she married her first husband, commercial artist Floyd Storm. The marriage did not last long; by 1931, she had sought (and won) a divorce on the grounds that Floyd was drinking heavily.
She got her start in the film industry working as a stenographer and then in the scenario department at Paramount. In 1933, she was promoted to full-fledged writer; her first writing assignment was working on Green Loaning with Phil Strong. Over the next decade or so, she'd write or contribute to more than a dozen scripts.
She was married to Homer Berry—a pioneering aviator—in 1942; the pair had no children.
