Her video for her spoken word track "Hey Baby" received moderate rotation on MTV and was highlighted on MTV's Beavis & Butt-head. She would also contributed vocals to two songs on Recoil's 1997 album Unsound Methods, including the single "Control Freak".
Estep went on to write several novels, including the Ruby Murphy mystery novels, Gargantuan and Hex. Hex was named New York Times Notable Book for 2003.
