Biography

Andrew Child

Andrew Grant was born in Birmingham, England in May 1968. He went to school in St Albans, Hertfordshire and later attended the University of Sheffield where he studied English Literature and Drama.

After graduation, Andrew set up and ran a small independent theatre company that showcased a range of original material to local, regional and national audiences. Following a critically successful but financially challenging appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Andrew moved into the telecommunications industry as a "temporary" solution to a short-term cash crisis.

Fifteen years later, after carrying out a variety of roles --- including a number that were covered by the UK Official Secrets Act --- Andrew escaped from corporate life, and established himself as the author of the critically acclaimed novels EVEN, DIE TWICE, MORE HARM THAN GOOD, RUN, FALSE POSITIVE, FALSE FRIEND, FALSE WITNESS, INVISIBLE and TOO CLOSE TO HOME.

Andrew is married to novelist Tasha Alexander, and lives on a wildlife preserve in Wyoming, USA.
