Andrew T Locke


About the Author:

Andrew T. Locke is the author of the Road Trip eBooks novels, and he runs Road Trip eBooks as his digital press.

Andrew knows all about life on the road as he's a 21st-century beatnik. Just like Joey he loves to travel, and he loves to do it by car. However, the beatnik in Andrew also believes that traveling by motorcycle is the perfect way to travel and to align oneself with each moment. Aligning oneself with the moment inherently facilitates soul-searching which is what the beatniks are all about! Just like Jake, Andrew knows what it is like to look for the deeper answers. To feel compelled to travel, to search Zen Buddhism and Taoism and Eastern thought generally, and to look to the beauty of Mother Nature while seeking those answers. Andrew has been to 41 of the 50 states as well as 6 different countries so far in his search, yet he still hasn't 'found' an answer. The journey is the destination, after all.
