Andrew is a 40-something married father of two living in Cambridge, Ontario. He says that his first published work was Losing Vern as part of the Orange Karen: A Tribute to a Warrior anthology. In reality, it was a 500-word anecdote about the time he lit himself on fire. That story made it into the third installment of the Darwin Awards books.

Fire is not the only foe for Andrew. He has received several severe concussions and a few “minor” ones, the last coming in the summer of 2011. It goes without saying that he is one hundred percent on board with head protection and brain health.

Not all his distinctions are as dubious as appearing in a Darwin Awards book. There was the time he did a trick on stage with Penn & Teller. He had a minute of time the Super Dave Osborne show. He scored a game-winning goal at Maple Leaf Gardens and even “sold” music to filmmaker Kevin Smith. He was even given a whole three seconds of non-speaking airtime in a TV commercial. And who could forget when he appeared as a fighting homeless man in a rap video.

His first novel, a story about his daughter’s scoliosis surgery is available now as is his first work of fiction, a psychological thriller about a misogynistic narcissist trapped in a hi-tech elevator in New York City. 

Andrew sometimes lets his love of attention override common sense. You can find evidence of this pretty much anywhere you can find Andrew. He currently blogs, is writing his next novel, is a huge fan of golf, hockey, science, equality, and the Oxford comma.

He writes, creates, and eats snacks and he is looking forward to sharing all of that with you. Except for the snacks. Those he's keeping for himself. 
Tiers
Potato Chips
$1 or more per month

Because you love me and want to ensure my writing desk is kept stocked with the necessities. Seriously, this is a thank you tier that lets me know that there's people out there that want me to keep creating. Every month I'll share a short excerpt from one of my novels (published or in progress). 

Nibs and Dark Chocolate
$3 or more per month

Nibs and dark chocolate are what keep me going when I'm in a slump. For this tier you'll get exclusive access to some poems, song lyrics, weekly excerpts from one of my novels (published or in progress), and a blog post. 

Peanut M&Ms
$5 or more per month

My son is allergic to peanuts so these are a delicacy for me. You'll get all the rewards of the previous tiers plus you'll get at least two videos a month on topics ranging from my writing process, works in progress, tips and tricks for writing of all kinds - especially if you're not a writer. 

Goals
$0 of $25 per month
When I reach $25month I'll get a paid copy of Scrivner. I'm told it's a lifesaver for any writer.
