Widely published as a journalist and essayist, Andrew's nonfiction has appeared nationally in Readers Digest, Playboy, the Christian Science Monitor, and in the San Francisco Examiner, where he worked as a reporter and won an award for his coverage of the United Farm Workers.
Before turning to fiction, he worked as a reporter and TV news anchor at KPIX-TV in San Francisco and WQXI-TV in Atlanta. Radio listeners in Monterey heard his voice each weekday morning as host of "Baroque 'n Eggs" on Classical K-Bach (KBOQ-FM). Early in his broadcasting career, he also hosted two daily talk shows on Atlanta's Ring Radio (WRNG-AM).
Andrew was the Paul Bowles Fellow in Creative Writing while working on his MFA at Georgia State University. His short story, "The Shape Up," won first prize for fiction at the Agnes Scott College Writer's Festival in 2002 and was later published in the Summer Reading Issue of Atlanta Magazine. That story is now part of The Hamlet Hambone Blues, Book 5 of the THE INVISIBLE BRAND series.
