Andrew Lawston is a London-based writer and amateur actor, who lives in the flat above an Indian restaurant with a little black cat. He knows this is pretty much as idyllic as life's ever going to get, given that his first ever job was working in an independent bookshop at the age of 16. Even then he knew that it must all go downhill from there...
Andrew's work mostly takes the form of short stories, which have been hailed as "funny", "quirky", "horrific" and "twisted". Often all at once. His work can be found in various anthologies, including Sanity Clause Is Coming, and his own self-published collection: Something Nice.
A fluent French speaker and former teacher, Andrew supplements his short story writing with French translations. Casanova's "Story of My Escape" was published in 2014 to the delight of English-speaking Casanova enthusiasts around the world, and further translations are in the pipeline of early 20th Century French novels.
In addition to his original fiction, Andrew has also placed Doctor Who stories in several charity anthologies, including The Cat That Walked Through Time, and Shelf Life.
