Andy grew up in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, spent too many years in the fog of London, then followed the long white cloud – and his wife – to Wellington. Always wanting to write, he completed an Advanced Certificate in Creative Writing (Novel) at Whitireia in 2015, followed by a Graduate Diploma in 2016. He writes contemporary fiction, science-fiction and travel blogs. Several of his sci-fi short stories have been published in Sponge.nz.
While living in Samoa for three months during 2017, he published the travel blog, One Hundred Days in Samoa, which he has also adapted into a book. More recently, he has published his first novel, Making Meredith, a historical mystery about the perils of looking for lost ancestors.
He was delighted to receive a New Zealand Society of Authors mentorship in 2018 to work on a second novel –- a love story set in Samoa about growing old.
