Amy Monaghan is a Los Angeles-based screenwriter and recovering Long Islander. After earning a bachelor’s degree in photography at RIT in Rochester, New York, she relocated to Scotland for graduate coursework in the history of post-mortem photography. Despite the mystique of the local highland cows, Amy quickly realized that her true love was storytelling. One transatlantic flight and a cross-country road trip later, she enrolled in UCLA’s Professional Program in Screenwriting and two years later completed her MFA in Screenwriting from UCLA, where her script PARADISE, PA was a winner in the 2019 Screenwriter’s Showcase. Amy’s writing explores the nuances of trauma, sexuality, and the search for personal freedom. She’s also a proud cat mom to beloved cat son Hal.
