James Andrew

James Andrew writes crime novels set just after the First World War in Yorkshire. They deal with the difficulties in adjusting to peace again after a horrendous conflict. There is a crime which has to be solved, a murder, and there is a detective who tries to solve it but James is also fascinated by the times that people lived through then, the social difficulties, and the daily heroism that occurs in peacetime, also in the everyday foibles in human nature and the dilemmas these lead to. There is a lot of tension, conflict, and genuine suspense.
James is a teacher by profession who lived and taught abroad for long periods particularly in Turkey. He has also had two books of poetry published, one of which, Sailing the Sands, published by Dionysia Press, won a Scottish Arts Council Award. The other is called Birdsong and Flame and was published by KT Publications. His first crime novel, The Body Under The Sands, was placed in the Hastings Lit Fest Crime Novel Competition.
