Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I wanted to be an old-fashioned man of letters, so I essentially prepared myself very carefully through my 20s for a job that doesn't exist anymore....Just before all this happened, I thought, 'Out of everything you can do or think you can do, pick one thing and be it.' What I picked was to be the screenwriter.

Trivia:

Won Pushcart Prize for literary short fiction, 1996. He also sold the novel "Light House: A Trifle" to the Penguin Putnam imprint Riverhead Books. Light House was optioned by Warner Brothers and Monahan wrote the script and became a WGA screenwriter when he was 35 years old. See more »
