The coming-of-age-heist-thriller I wrote with John Leary just got an honorable mention from the LA Reel Film Festival.
Not bad for a girl locked in the trunk of a car!
Both of the scripts that John Leary and I have written together, Heaven Sent and Girl in Trunk, are Quarterfinalists in the NexTV Writing and Pitch Competition.
The horror/thriller Heaven Sent I wrote with John Leary is a quarterfinalist in the Cinestory Screenwriting Contest. Semifinalists will be announced this month.

Bare Hands and Wooden Limbs, my documentary about a village of landmine survivors in Cambodia, will screen at the Women's International Film Festival on Thursday, March 31, 2011 at 7 pm.
Yesterday my writing partner, John Leary, pitched our script GIRL IN TRUNK to an eager panel of producers at the IFP Script-to-Screen Pitch Panel. It was a fantastic experience, not least because the
GIRL IN TRUNK by John Leary & Alison McMahan is one of five scripts selected to be a part of the IFP Script to Screen Conference “Make Your Pitch” Workshop!
