    More Details Hide Details This was prior to Apple Corps' move to Savile Row later in 1968. At the time McCartney was just standing there in conversation with some business contacts. A relationship developed and he later invited her to move in with him at 7 Cavendish Avenue in St John's Wood, London NW8 9JD, where he was living at the time. McCartney gave her a job working for Derek Taylor, Apple Corps' Public Relations manager, writing press releases for various Apple Corps artists including James Taylor, Mary Hopkin, Badfinger and Jackie Lomax. She was present, as was Lennon's girlfriend Yoko Ono when the "White Album" was being recorded when she says she: "was almost always stoned", and that: "the four began to diverge as artists during these sessions". Lennon and Ono came to live at Cavendish Avenue temporarily as guests when Schwartz was living there. Schwartz says that John was upset one morning after finding an insulting note from Paul about Ono, which referred to her as a "Jap tart".
    In 1968, intrigued by the Beatles' formation of the Apple Corps which she had read about in the American magazine "Rolling Stone", at the age of 23 she went to London to see if one of her scripts was of interest to what she regarded as the "non-establishment".

Her script was for a film about a street violinist and actor she had met when he was doing his act in front of Carnegie Hall, New York. She thought the story would be perfect for Paul McCartney with the addition of his lyrical and romantic musical melodies.
