About André

Born in Gloucestershire to Anglo-French parents, André grew up in Kent, Suffolk and Yorkshire, and currently lives in Cambridge.  He has travelled extensively and his interest in other countries, their history and cultures has inspired much of his fiction to date.

Alongside his writing he has worked in educational publishing, as a charity fundraiser and consultant, English and creative writing tutor and as a caddy on the professional golf tour.

He is also a keen sportsman and has completed over 30 marathons, including the ‘Brathay 10in10’ in 2015.  Described by Bear Grylls as “the UK’s toughest endurance challenge”, participants run a marathon round Lake Windermere on 10 successive days to raise funds for the Brathay Trust, a locally-based charity helping disadvantaged children.
