Muir worked as a columnist for the Universal Service Syndicate from 1935-1938, and wrote for the Miami News and Miami Herald newspapers until 1965. In addition to writing columns, she was the children’s book editor for the Miami Herald and the drama critic and women’s editor of the Miami News.

Another book, The Biltmore: Beacon for Miami, was published in 1987 and updated in 1993 and 1997.
