Writer, businessman, and father of four, Andrew Lucas was born in Hampshire in 1958, and attended St Michaels School in Aldershot and Farnham school of art & design before graduating as an adult through UOB(Eng Lit) in 1996.
During the years between college and university Andrew trained as hairsdresser and as a photographic stylist and make-up artist through Vidal Sassoon, the Lauder Group, and Essanelle (Harrods & Selfridges). During the late eighties and early nineties Andrew left London to build and manage the successful hair & beauty group 'Mirror Mirror', before moving to Isle of Wight to set up and run Andrew Ross H&B. Always a storyteller at heart, in March 2008 Andrew retired from business to concentrate on writing full time.
