Andrew was born in Exeter, Devon, at the end of the last war. His father served in the Royal Navy seeing action in the Atlantic and with the Italian landings, which may be why some of his stories are about Italy and Italian girls!
Educated at a school in the Midlands of England, he follows another old school boy D.H. Lawrence, in his quest for the purpose of life? Having shown little interest at school, he was sent to a School of Navigation and then apprenticed to the ‘Port out – Starboard home’ Steam Company. He served on some very old cargo vessels and some yellow funnel dream boats during the 60’s and 70’s. Then becoming disillusioned and bored he went back to study for a new career in finance. His career in finance was to last nearly thirty years, working with British, American and Swiss Banks and finally with his own finance company in downtown Beirut.
His writing developed after he retired through visits to the CERN centre in Switzerland, which also forms a basis for some of his stories. To write his books, he has moved through places where he worked in the past, from London, Lebanon, to Geneva and the Caribbean. Towards the end of 2014 he studied online with the Resonance Project, Kilauea, which helped him with the science in the final book of the trilogy. More recently he has been active as a script writer on www.stage32.com – writing a pilot script for his second book – Forces of Retribution. Now back in 2015, he formed the Geneva Creatives Group and can sometimes be found at the Grutli, discussing new projects over a glass of wine.
Andrew remains pensive and lives in the Swiss Romande part of Switzerland with his wife and a teenage son. He can be contacted on (0041) 22 7793570 and at firstname.lastname@example.org.
