About the Author
Andy is the founder of www.thinkalink.co.uk which was launched in May '08. It's a fun and easy way to remember things employing the underused learning-tool, linking. The site is a meeting-place, online, to learn any fact you care to mention whether it be the spelling of Diarrhoea to what the jaw bone is called. People submit 'links' to the site which the public then rate with a mark out of 10 with the most popular links ending up in the book. Andy is busy touring the UK presenting to children of all ages from 4 to 18! His spelling technique 'Letter Linking' has been called 'Groundbreaking' by the Dyslexia Association. He is one of six children who were brought up in Wimbledon. He spent ten successful years in the money markets as a foreign exchange broker. Since leaving the markets in 1998, he ran his own recruitment company until May 2008 when he left the company to dedicate all of his time to launching Thinkalink. Ever since his father introduced him to crosswords in his early teens, he has loved playing with words. He dreamt up the idea of 'Thinkalink' in 1995 when he was flicking through a map of the world and started to learn the capital cities by this word association. Up until 2007, he had lived in London but decided to move to Sussex with his wife, Alex, and their 10 year old triplets to experience the country life!
