About me

Alison McMahan is an award-winning screenwriter and author. Published books: The Saffron Crocus (Black Opal Books 2014), The Films of Tim Burton: Animating Live Action in Hollywood (Bloomsbury 2005), and Alice Guy Blaché, Lost Visionary of the Cinema (Bloomsbury 2002), which won two awards, was translated into Spanish, adapted into a play, and is now being produced as a documentary by a Hollywood production company.

McMahan has trudged through the jungles of Honduras and Cambodia, through the favelas of Brazil and from race tracks to drag strips in the U.S. in search of footage for her documentaries. She applies the same sense of adventure to her books of mystery and romantic suspense for teens and adults.
