Andy Hallam

Biography

'Golden Eagle' is Andy Hallam's first novel. Back in the day he once trod the fairways of Britain and Europe carrying the bag of an aspiring young golf professional by the name of John Vingoe. Together they ventured as far a field as Bled in Slovenia, Biarritz in Southern France, as well as the equally exotic Bolton and Blackpool. They didn't win much but they drank a lot of beer and dreamt of greater glories. One dull September day on the old links in Bolton a large black Raven jumped onto Andy's shoulder and pecked his ear just as John was about to tee off. It was trying to tell them something.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
In Sunningdale, Berkshire, England. It was very leafy and green and pleasant. I went to a small Church of England school up to the age of eight, it was very strict but a good start. We used to go walking on the heathland around the famous Sunningdale golf course, I guess that's where I first got interested in the game. Despite leaving that area at a young age I still think of it as my home.
When did you first start writing?
Apart from school, I tried a bit of poetry around my late twenties, it was self indulgent and not very good. Joe Slice came about a couple of years ago after a friend of mine had a idea to write a story about a golf pro. He couldn't get it started so I said I'd have a go. Golden Eagle is my first novel.
