Patricia M. Mahon is a native of New York, a dual Irish and American citizen and a 25-year resident of Los Angeles. She is a graduate of Manhattanville College in Purchase, NY (BA) and Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland (MA). She also did PhD coursework at Tulane University and the University of Denver and studied at the WB Yeats International Summer School in Sligo, Ireland. Mahon is a novelist, a dramatist, a screenwriter and a poet.


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 2023 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 in West Hills, CA.


In the Press -

for 'The Island.'

finalist-LARGE shiny-hr.png

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.

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!
