Bio

Peter Nolan Smith moved from his native New England to New York in 1976. The city was ablaze like the Goths had just burned Rome, but the East Village was a refuge for young malcontents.

A doorman at illegal nightclubs in the late-70s, Smith moved to Paris to pursue writing detective poetry.

Nothing came of it other than a few short stories and a failed screenplay.

Back in New York he compiled more stories and published in various literary magazines before heading out to Asia for a decade long excursion throughout the Far East.

In recent years he resumed writing novels and collections of short stories without bothering to have them published other than on his website www.mangozeen.com living by his old motto.

No commercial value. No sellout.

Peter Nolan Smith now lives between Fort Greene and Thailand and is currently writing a novel about teenage devil worship in the 1960s.
