About AD Hartley

AD Hartley studied animation at University and used that training well by stumbling into IT Finance. At various times, and often briefly, he has been a baker, turkey butcher, cinema usher, TV game show researcher, language school receptionist, website sports columnist, youth charity team leader, business consultant, overseas expedition leader, project manager for overseas environmental or social impact charities and latterly Asia operations manager for an international youth development organisation. That animation Degree has served him well. In 2013 he founded Dragon Social Responsibility, which keeps him busy when he isn't writing.

At various times he has lived in Middlesbrough, Hull, London, Kenya, Borneo, Cambodia and now lives in Kuala Lumpur.

His first book for young adults, The Secrets of Ice Cream Success, was based on a short story he wrote many moons ago, which was in turn based on an animation script written many moons before that. See, there was a point to that Animation Degree.

Review by: GC MacQuarie on March 7, 2015 :
When this book was forwarded to me, I was told that another reviewer had compared the story to that of an old fashioned kids book. I guess I am old enough to now call myself one of those kids who loved the 'old fashioned' kids books like Roald Dahl, so I was more than happy to read The Secrets of Ice Cream Success.

As soon as I began reading this story, I thought of books by YA authors such as Morris Gleitzman or Paul Jennings - books that had a dark twist. Books you read when you were a kid that seemed like a fascinating tale, yet secretly taught you a valuable life lesson between the lines. To appreciate this story, you need to remember what it was like to be adolescent.
