She wrote several episodes from The Original Series, The Animated Series, The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine as well novels, comics and video games.
Fontana's first and only novel to date is Vulcan's Glory which was published 1989. In 1999 she wrote the story for the video game Secret of Vulcan Fury which was ultimately unreleased.
