Arthur M. Jolly (born 1969) is an American writer.

Jolly was born in Lewes, England, the son of Sir Richard Jolly, a development economist, and Lady Alison Jolly, a primatologist. He graduated from Stuyvesant High School in 1987, where he was a student of Frank McCourt. From 1988 to 1998, Jolly worked in New York as a stunt performer and special effects artist, garnering over 160 credits and doubling numerous actors including Adrien Brody. During this time, Jolly wrote several screenplays and had his first publication, the short story Dancing with Fire, published in the literary journal Reader’s Break.

In 1998, Jolly moved to Northern California to become a helicopter pilot - a career that would last for eight years, flying tourists into the Grand Canyon, fighting forest fires in Northern Idaho, and teaching U.S. Army pilots in Fort Rucker, Alabama.

After his short play Howie’s Last Words was accepted into the Summer Shorts Festival by the Miami City Theatre (chosen from 850 submissions) and given a full equity production in Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Jolly moved to Los Angeles to write full time.
