Andy’s writes speculative fiction and his stories often take on fantasy, science fiction, or horror elements as needed. A member of the Sudbury Writers’ Guild since 2007, Andy is a past President of the Guild and enjoys working with the local community of writers to help them achieve their writing potential. Andy is a graduate of the Viable Paradise workshop (2015) and attended the Sudbury Theatre Centre’s Playwright Junction workshop (2013-14).
Andy’s short story “Second Harvest” was published in FictionVale’s May 2014 issue called “Episode 3: A Different Outcome”. With elements of alternate history and horror – “Second Harvest” is about a Canadian World War I nurse returning to the homefront and is forced to confront her role in the war. Andy’s short stories “Frozen” and “Mother’s Day” appeared in the Sudbury Writers’ Guild Anthology Sudbury Ink, published in 2016.
In 2017 Andy was one of six people who had poems accepted to be a part of Sudbury’s “Raining Poetry Project”. The poems were painted onto sidewalks around town with a special ink that only appears when wet. Andy’s poem from this project was also published online in the December 2017 edition terra north/nord.
Andy’s latest story “Rec and Dec” (sounds like wreck and deck) will appear in an upcoming issue of On Spec Magazine in 2021. More details will be posted when available.
Originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario Andy has called Sudbury home since 2006.
