It is amazing the stuff the internet lets you find. It really isn't to clear about what her opinions are in the biography. You have to hold some pretty interesting opinion to tick off Upton Sinclair, Jack London, Thomas Dixon and Dora Russell.
Thomas Dixon probably disliked the fact that in her book "The Recording Angel" she "mocks the Lost Cause mythology" (New Georgia Encyclopedia --http://www.georgiaencyclopedia.com/nge/Article.jsp?id=h-484
I don't know about the rest, but being pro-women's suffrage and criticizing other writers for criticizing "southern writers who sentimentalized a past that never existed" (New Georgia). Being a Southern apologist probably didn't make too many friends outside the South either. Great find TallyDi, she does sound fascinating.
