Andrew Buckley has been writing steadily since he was six years old when he wrote a story about a big blue dinosaur and received a gold star from his elementary school teacher. He had the good fortune to grow up in England where the sense of humor is rather silly.
In 1997 he moved to Canada because the thought of a country run entirely by beavers was amusing. He attended the Vancouver Film School’s Writing for Film and Television program where he graduated with excellence. After pitching and developing several screenplay projects for film and television he worked in marketing and public relations for several years before venturing into a number of content writing contracts. During this time he abandoned screenwriting altogether and began writing his first novel.
Andrew now dwells happily in the Okanagan Valley, BC with 3 kids, 2 cats, 1 needy dog, 1 beautiful wife, and a multitude of voices that live comfortably inside of his head. His debut novel Death, The Devil, and the Goldfish was released to thunderous silence (people were too in awe to clap) on December 5th, 2012 from Curiosity Quills Press followed closely by his second full length novel, Stiltskin, published on December 9th, 2013.
Andrew also works as a Copywriter/Digital Content Curator and is the VP of Operations for CQ Press. He also co-hosts a geek movie podcast, is working on his first YA novel, and has a stunning amount of other ideas, none of which he has time for until he figures out how to successfully clone himself...Watch this space...
Good job watching that space there, gripping wasn't it? As of May 2014 Andrew's literary work is represented by Mark Gottlieb at the Trident Media Group in NY.
