Alyson Mead

My fiction, essays and articles have appeared in over thirty publications, and I have received the Columbine Award for Screenwriting, the Roy W. Dean Filmmaking Grant, and awards from Writer’s Digest, Indie Excellence, Writer’s Block, and USA Book News. My new book, Searching for Sassy: An L.A. Phone Psychic’s Tales of Life, Lust & Love, won Hay House’s Book-to-Screen Pitchfest, and resulted in a deal with the producers of USA Network’s PSYCH, to develop the book for television. I have produced a
documentary on mandated medical care featuring Academy award winning actress Susan Sarandon, and a feature film starring Academy Award winning actress Olympia Dukakis. My plays have been staged at Off-Off Broadway and regional
theaters around the country, including La MaMa, St. Mark’s
Church-in-the-Bowery, 8BC, Venus Theatre, the 9th Women Playwrights International Conference in Sweden, & Limelight, among others.
