Andrew P Weston
Andrew P Weston was born in the city of Birmingham, in the UK, and grew up in the towns of Bearwood and Edgbaston. He eventually attended Holly Lodge Grammar School for Boy’s where he was School Captain and Head Boy.
He was an active sportsperson for the school, college and a variety of rugby, martial art, swimming and athletics teams throughout the city.
Graduating in 1977 with qualifications in the Sciences, Mathematics and English, Andrew joined the Royal Marines and went on to fulfill a number of specialist roles both in the UK and abroad.
In 1985 he became a police officer with the Devon & Cornwall Constabulary, and served in a variety of uniformed and plain clothed departments until his retirement in 2008.
Between joining the military and retiring from the police, Andrew wrote and illustrated a selection of private books for his children regarding the life of a tiny kitten, called, “The Adventures of Willy Whiskers”, gained further qualifications in Law, Astronomy and Religious Studies, and became a member of Mensa. He also continued to be an active sportsperson, providing lessons free of charge to local communities.
An unfortunate injury received on duty meant Andrew had to retire early from the police force, but after moving to the sunny Greek island of Kos to speed up his recuperation, he was at last able to devote time to a concept he had developed over his years in the military and police, which led to his first novel, Guardian Angels.
When not writing, Andrew enjoys Greek dancing and language lessons, and being told what to do by his wife, Annette. He also works diligently in his local community saving veteran Kamikaze circus mice from a life of substance abuse, and has built up an impressive collection of comedy mustaches.
Andrew now submits regular educational articles to Astronaut.com, and is contracted to several publishers for a growing number of novels and short stories. His preferred genres are science fiction and paranormal fantasy.
