Charles Beaumont (January 2, 1929 - February 21, 1967) was a prolific U.S author of science fiction who frequently wrote for The Twilight Zone TV series. He was born in Chicago, Illinois as Charles Leroy Nutt to an abusive mother who frequently dressed him in girls' clothes and once killed one of his pets as punishment. Beaumont was an outgoing, spontaneous person, prone to take trips out of country at a moment's notice. At age 34, Beaumont began to suffer from Alzheimer's disease; he died later at 38.
