Tony Nichols is the Writerman.
Tony is descended from a long line of compulsive storytellers. Always in search of new stories, he has lived in a fishing village on the coast of Japan, contracted malaria in an African jungle, and enjoyed a short, spectacularly unsuccessful career as a futon salesman. Once, he shared an elevator with Jean Claude Van Damme.
Now a Los Angeles-based screenwriter, he writes movies about high school, underdogs, superheroes, road trips, old cars, bowling, barbeque, leprechaun gangsters, impossible quests, breakfast cereal, best friends, true love, and the unluckiest guy in the world. When he’s not busy typing, Tony plays the trumpet in rock and roll bands and cooks meat over fire. His favorite color is orange.
