Frances Nichols Hanna aka Fan Nichols
« on: Thursday 26 January 12 08:02 GMT (UK) »
Seeking information about the author Fan Nichols whose married name was Frances Nichols Hanna. She wrote pulp fiction - tough hardboiled noire romances- she was published in the 1930s, 1940s and 50s , and I believe in the 60s. Fan lived New York in the late 40s and through the 50s. Probably born around 1914. She had been a song plugger in a Portland Oregon music shop ( ie a piano player who played the sheet music  in a music store to promote its sale) before going to New York. She had contacts in Hollywood, and may have written some film scripts during the 1950s/60s.
Any information about birth, family, marriage(s) ( known married name Hanna), husband, children, death would be welcome. Anything at all.
I have a full list of her books and stories, it is the personal information that I would love to have.
Many thanks, Maggie
