Nicolas Mann, author of Night Duty
Nicolas Mann (no relation to BBB author Jeff Mann) grew up in Northern Ohio, where he began writing and drawing at an early age. In 1974 he moved to Chicago, where he studied at The American Academy of Art. His writing was published first in 1993 when, prompted by a friend, he submitted a story to the popular gay / bi men’s magazine, HandJobs. Since then, Mann has contributed more than a dozen stories to HJ, often accompanied by his own drawings and photography, as well as illustrations for other stories. Mann’s writing has been published also in 100% Beef magazine and in the anthology, Tales from the Den. His artwork has graced the cover of the weekly paper Gay Chicago, and appeared in several local bar advertisements. The author lives in upstate Wisconsin with his partner Matthew, their dog Gus, and their cat Lila.
