My Little Dog
Behind the pen
It takes an eclectic past to come up with a unique style, and Andy has sure experienced a lot: after graduating psychology, he joined the army reserve, worked as a security guard at a casino, collected 47 stamps in his passport, worked as a site foreman, a school teacher and built a career as a musician. He draws on these experiences to write stories that will make you laugh, feel warm inside and hopefully, help you see the rainbow in the storm.
