About Andy

 

Andy Robb is the author of the Geekhood books, the first of which was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Award. He’s had many jobs over the years, most notably as an actor working on stage and screen but now spends his time writing on his house boat on the Thames; occasionally stopping to feed the ducks.
