Andy was born and grew up in Bedfordshire in the UK. He was a dreamy child who had as many imaginary adventures as he did real ones on the river and in the fields near his family home. Many summer days were spent building rafts (that usually sunk) and floating down the river with his friends. When it rained, he would spend hours daydreaming about hidden doorways to underground worlds where strange creatures lived.
After twenty years as an engineer, he wanted to spend more time on enjoyable and creative pursuits, and now writes horror stories, teaches classical guitar and is a keen amateur ornithologist.
A note from Andy.
Like most authors, I like to hear what readers think of my books. My writing takes me to some dark and mysterious places that I enjoy sharing with you, the reader, and there are fewer rewards greater than hearing that you have enjoyed them too.
So if you have an opinion and the time, I would appreciate your comments. You can leave them on Goodreads, my Amazon author page, Facebook, Google+ or send a message through the contact page of my website.
I’d love to hear from you.
