Author

Andrew began writing creatively in the performing arts, working on plays and screenplays. After a family friend lost her German Shepherd to long-term illness, Andrew’s sister Liz approached him with an idea for a picture book that would help people through the grieving process of losing a pet. This book became The Great Big Ark in the Sky. After writing the book’s text along with detailed illustration descriptions, Liz and Andrew found artist Lucy Koo, who took everything that was in their heads and transformed it into beautiful illustrations. The Great Big Ark in the Sky is published by Belle Isle Books, an inprint of Brandylane Publishers.
