Mahoney was a native of Elma, Iowa, and grew up on a farm; she also spent time in Chicago.[3] By the early 1910s, she had moved to Hollywood, where she was working as a stenographer.[4]

Her first known screenwriting assignment involved adapting Charles Thomas Dazey's story into the 1917 silent drama Peggy Leads the Way, directed by Ingraham and shot on location at Ben Lomond near Santa Cruz, California.[5] She continued writing through around 1920, at which point she was residing in Hollywood. Little is known of what happened to her after that date.
