Mahon has won international poetry awards and multiple screenwriting and film festival honors. Her 3-Act stage play The Abbey Yard was produced at The Odyssey Theatre in LA in 2000. In 2015, Mahon completed the first volume of “Stories from The Age of Distraction: The Island,” a protest narrative about a global storytelling 'app' that addresses the distraction of the digital age and its impact on human communication, inter-relationships, and the future of the creative imagination. In 2019 she completed "A Night in the Vine," a story about perfect strangers becoming perfect storytellers with a little help from the earth, the soil, the seasons, and good wine. She currently spends her time between West Hills and Los Olivos, CA.
In the Press -
for 'The Island.'
A journey of the universal imagination. Interesting, beautiful, different. I know so many people who are looking for this 'island.'
A compelling journey through the world of storytelling ... raises important questions about the future of humanity in an increasingly fragmented and confusing digital landscape.
New York Times Best-Selling Author
Totally un-putdownable! That's not a word but should be. I loved the characters, the concept, and the brilliant story. I want to go all the places mentioned, meet the characters, and if that 'app' truly exists, I want to download it!
