Zoë's first assignment was as a TV writer on Marvel Studios Wolverine and the X-Men followed by a sci-fi pilot sale, "Dreamsolver" to ABC Television. She was then hired by The Walt Disney Company to write the feature film Tigress for comic book legend and producer Stan Lee, followed by Gargoyles and subsequently sold a movie pitch Book Of Shadows to director Rob Reiner under his banner Castle Rock Entertainment, which she scripted.[2]

Soon after this she was hired by producers George Clooney and Grant Heslov at Smokehouse Pictures to adapt Neal Stephenson's 1996 Hugo Award-winning post-cyberpunk novel The Diamond Age into a 3 part special event miniseries for the SyFy Channel.[3]

Following two years working at 20th Century Fox in their new punch up feature writers room (Fox Writers Studio), Zoë returned to TV to join Ash vs Evil Dead from Exec Producer Sam Raimi. This was followed by writing on season two of Game of Thrones for Telltale Games. She then wrote on Sleepy Hollow (season 4) for Fox.

Subsequently, Zoë was hired as a team with Patrick Given to write a feature film based on the life of the Polish teenage Holocaust rescuer Irene Gut Opdyke, by Good Deed Entertainment.
