Mora is the author of five plays:
- Bang! A Love Story (Dragonon Incorporated; 2005). ISBN 978-0-9763398-4-7 Scenes from the controversial, award-winning Bang! featuring ER actress Linda Cardellini were performed at the Acme Theater in Los Angeles and The American Place Theater in New York. Bang! features characters whose core values are upended by youth, and was described in an LA Times review as "a blend of Vladimir Nabokov and Bret Easton Ellis."
- P.O.P.: The Principles of Perfection (2006) spotlights America's obsession with pop culture, pop stars, pop psychology and pop transformation.
- Modern Love (2009) follows one of Hollywood's most successful blockbuster producers, whose obsession with his directorial debut takes him down a dark, precarious path.
- Silencing Silas (2012) is a one act noir play that features a lethal female lead.
- Hang Fire (2012) is suffused with Mora's trademark edgy, dark humor. It explores the shadow side of sex and power through a sex therapy group turned private revenge clique set on a dangerous vigilante mission.
