Starting in 1954, May wrote thousands of science encyclopedia articles for [[wikipedia:Consolidated Book Publishers|Consolidated Book Publishers]]; after finishing that project, she wrote similar articles for two other encyclopedia publishers. In 1957 she and her husband founded a production and editorial service for small publishers, Publication Associates; the most notable projects May wrote and edited during this period include two episodes of the [[wikipedia:Buck Rogers#Comic_strip|Buck Rogers comic strip]] and a new Catholic catechism for [[wikipedia:Franciscan Herald Press|Franciscan Herald Press]], a publisher associated with the [[wikipedia:Order of Friars Minor|Order of Friars Minor]].

Having moved to Oregon in the early 1970s, May began to get reacquainted with the world of fandom; in 1976, she attended [[wikipedia:Westercon|Westercon]] 29 in Los Angeles, her first science-fiction convention in many years. She made an elaborate diamond-crusted "space suit" for the convention's costume party, which started her thinking about what sort of character would wear such a suit. She soon began accumulating a folder of ideas for what would become the [[Galactic Milieu Series]], and in 1978 she began writing what would become the ''[[Saga of Pliocene Exile]]''. The first book in that series, ''The Many-Colored Land'', was published in 1981 by [[wikipedia:Houghton Mifflin|Houghton Mifflin]]. In 1987, she continued the series with ''Intervention'', finally followed in 1992 (with a change in publisher) by the [[Galactic Milieu Series]]: ''Jack the Bodiless'', ''Diamond Mask'' and ''Magnificat''.
