Born in the Netherlands and raised in Canada, ANDREW H. VANDERWAL embarked in several years of “on-the-road” travel through Europe, the Middle East and Asia before undertaking a self directed interdisciplinary program at York University that included fiction writing studios led by renowned Canadian writers. Further world travel (this time through Andean countries) led to his graduate studies at Carleton University’s Norman Patterson School of International Affairs, where he studied the daunting third world development issues he had encountered. He has since made a career out of helping companies with international trade.
Andrew and his wife have two boys with whom he enjoys doing all the things that he didn't get to when he was growing up. When his boys asked him to write them a story, little did he know that the story would grow to become The Battle for Duncragglin and Death of a King. Andrew lives in Toronto, Ontario, with his family.
