While I was looking for stuff from MZB I did not know before, I stumbled over this short essay.
It does not contain a story by herself, but an analysis of and her thoughts about the relatively low number of female characters in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.
It makes an interesting read if you are interested in such type of analysis, and in both authors, as I am.
Just do not make the mistake of expecting a fantasy story and then be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lord of the Rings discussed by Marion Zimmer Bradley, 29 Jan 2012
By

This review is from: Men, Halflings, and Hero Worship (Kindle Edition)
Anyone who has read Marion Zimmer Bradley will know her books have strong female lead characters. Her discussion of The Lord of the Rings by Tolkien centres on the female characters in the Lord of the Rings - surprisingly few of them. I have read the book, The Lord of the Rings, more than once, and watched the DVDs, also more than once. Ms Bradley is very fair, indeed sympathetic, to Tolkien, his characters and his story. This is not a particularly long dissertation (not book length) but it shows interesting thoughts, side lights, insights into both the book and Tolkien's female characters.
