She didn't illustrate any of her books (as far as I know, at least).
There were different reasons for different books. In some cases, she wanted to write about her alter ego, she wrote her memoirs, a detective story set in Ancient Egypt was the… result of a challenge presented to her by one of her friends and so on.

After her divorce she needed her money and her independence. Anyway, she claimed she got her best plot ideas while doing the washing up!
