Kathleen O'Brien I believe worked for Atari and wrote the Assembly language Editor cartridge, that was maybe also used to right the Basic cartridge, both for the Atari 800.

I assume she is still with us, don’t know though, but I think it would be interesting to hear about early development for the Atari 8 Bit line of computers.
