Hello everyone! I am thrilled to return to the amazing MTG family whom I've missed tremendously and I'm excited to sing, share, and shine with everyone!

About Maura

Maura Megan Knowles is an Actor/Singer/Writer. Maura’s talents have led to a wide range of projects, from her roles in Francis Ford Coppola’s GIDGET, to the award-winning rock musical BARE. She has also starred in a number of feature films, sharing the silver screen with Jeffrey Donovan, Laura Prepon, Scott Wolff, Anne Meara, and Warren Beatty, and has been a featured vocalist on numerous CDs.

Maura’s literary skills have created exciting opportunities, including being one of twelve songwriters accepted into the Mercer Great American Songwriting Program at Northwestern University in Chicago. A published writer in various media, Maura has written for trade publications, magazines, and blogs (e.g., THE MORSELIST, Blooming Business Bilingual eMagazine). Her plays and musicals in development have also been featured in theatre festivals.

T.V. credits include CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND, ROSEWOOD, STITCHERS, LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT, MEDIUM, LIE TO ME, NUMBERS, E.R., GIRLFRIENDS, PROVIDENCE, BECKER, and THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS. Recurring roles in COMMON GROUND, JUST SAYIN’, and THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL.

Maura was inspired to write Insult to Injury based on her own life and death experiences as a medical miracle survivor, turning to her Irish American comedy roots. She believes that a balanced life is important and enriches the lives of all artists/humans.

An avid traveler, a.k.a, The Wanderlust Queen, her singing career has taken her across the globe, inspiring her to trek throughout Europe with a recent visit to her motherland. She’s also traveled to Ireland, Greece, Turkey, Bali, Thailand, Japan, China, Africa, Seychelles, the Caribbean, Mexico, Costa Rica, Peru, French Polynesia, Canada, and throughout most of the United States including Hawaii and Alaska. Her guiding philosophy is from her hero, Audrey Hepburn, “Nothing is impossible. The word itself says I’m POSSIBLE!”

Maura, aka Mo, the Morselist, is also a Certified Integrative Health Coach, and the C.E.O. and founder of Mac-n-Mo’s, a Health and Wellness Company created in honor of her dear late dad, Mac, a diabetic, after he survived quadruple bypass surgery.
