In 1972, Andrew Fish was born in Chatham, Kent. He promptly escaped and made his way to the heart of Sherwood Forest, where he now lives as a software engineer and aspiring author. If you’ve got a problem and you can find him... actually, you’re probably better off with the A-Team, although they’re probably getting a bit old by now. There’s the guys who were in the recent film version, of course, they’re a few years younger, but since the film didn’t really do so well they might not care to be reminded of it... But I digress.
Andrew Fish has had a long, varied, but hitherto unrewarding writing career. He started writing in his teens, mostly for pleasure, but a piece of what would now be called flash fiction entitled Exit Darwin made it onto BBC Radio Kent in the early 1990’s. Since then he has had various brushes with publishing success, from an almost signed radio comedy in the early 2000’s, to various attempts to get properly published throughout the last decade or so. Erasmus Hobart and the Golden Arrow is his most-frequently almost properly published book, although this may be because most of the others have never seen an agent’s in-tray let alone their rejection pile.
He hopes this time it will be right, it will work and - to complete the Douglas Adams paraphrase - nobody will have to get nailed to anything.

Great fun! As an I.T. professional and an erstwhile musician I found the entire piece hilarious from beginning to end. Thanks and I am looking forward to more !
