Nick Tassoni

Nick writes about monsters. He does so because he was scared shitless of everything as a kid. Especially monsters. Boogeymen, aliens, creatures in the woods, the mechanical shark from Jaws. They all scared the hell out of him. Now that he's grown up, his fears have grown too.

Aging, isolation, family pressure. His writing turns those monsters from his childhood into metaphors for obstacles we all face. Nick hails from New Bedford, MA. A port city near Boston. His script SILK, a story about ghost spiders (yes, really), was recently optioned.

Nick is an Emerging Screenwriters Genre Competition Finalist, Austin Film Festival 2nd Rounder, Screencraft Horror Semifinalist, and PAGE International Screenwriting Competition Semifinalist. He loves dinosaurs, reading, hiking, and people… most people.
