After graduating from Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, Andrew spent a couple of years attempting to break into the film industry (including an unenviable job as Michael Winner’s assistant). He then founded two highly successful design and construction companies, working both in the UK and the South of France, before turning his focus to his main interests: sailing and writing.
Andrew is the author of Caesar’s Passage, which was shortlisted for the Authors’ Club Best First Novel award, and an Introduction to the Canal du Midi, which was the inspiration for Rick Steins’ TV series. He has also written extensively for yachting magazines, as well as writing and editing his own magazine, Cruising World. A keen yachtsman, he has sailed extensively through the Mediterranean, the Red Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Caribbean, often using his first-hand experience as locations in his books. His second novel, a thriller called Grave Island, is published in June 2018.
Andrew is married with two adult children and one and a half grandchildren.
