About this submission
Doing her best to embrace reality after falling down the rabbit hole of middle age, a woman throws caution to the wind as she and her friends navigate the strange, peculiar journey of tripping into the second half of life.
Los Angeles, CA, USA
A founding partner of Against Type Films, Mugs is presently in pre-production on DETROIT ROUNDS, a feature screenplay she adapted from the NAACP Image award-winning play Rounds. Mugs’s younger self felt her destiny was to be a covert operative or a preschool teacher, so she compromised by combining the skill set of each into a writing career, originally as an advertising copywriter and then transitioning to screenwriting. She’s been a finalist in the Final Draft Big Break, HollyShorts and Sundance YouTube New Voices competitions. Her writing has been workshopped at the Stowe Story Labs and Stowe Writer Retreat, and Rocaberti Writer Retreat/Spain, and she’s presently a writer on the ISA Development Slate. Mugs studied Philosophy at Boston College and graduated from Trinity University with a B.A., Economics. She’s also an alum of Musician’s Institute with a concentration in Bass Performance. Mugs lives in Los Angeles with her wife, producer Deidra Dwyer. She believes that the voices not always heard are the ones we should amplify.
