Andrew read a little law and a lot of sport at Cambridge University, and held various positions in the book trade, including being a Director of Waterstone & Co, and Chairman of Methven’s PLC, before turning to writing.
Inspired by a lifelong interest in early modern history, his Thomas Hill novels are set during the English Civil Wars, and the early period of the Restoration.
He lives with his wife in Surrey, near to their three children and two grandchildren. His interests include golf, gardening, and drawing.
Andrew's next novel, The Incendium Plot, was published in February 2017 and is the first of two thrillers featuring Dr Christopher Radcliff, an intelligencer for the Earl of Leicester, and is set in 1572 at the time of the massacre of the Huguenots in France.
Beautiful Star, a collection of historical short stories, puts a spin on the history we thought we knew. A moving and affecting journey through time, the Dome Press published this title in January 2018.
