Nicholas Pell's earliest writings appeared in punk rock bible Maximumrocknroll when he was just 15. Since then, his writing has appeared on Salon, LA Weekly, GOOD and AlterNet. Before becoming a big boy writer who pays his bills banging on an old MacBook, Pell worked variously as a warehouse clerk, steelworker, boutique manager, porn store clerk, advertising salesman, draftsman and telephone fundraiser. He lives in Hollywood, California, less than a block from the handprints of Steve McQueen, Michael Caine and Humphrey Bogart.
