Andy Goldman has been writing since he was a little kid bashing out stories on his typewriter. They were often incredibly silly firsthand accounts of the adventures of his Transformers, G.I. Joe, and Star Wars action figures. Fast forward thirty years and Andy is still playing with toys and telling stories, much to his delight. The typewriter, alas, did not survive.
One or two other things have changed in the interim, the most important being his marriage to a wonderful, supportive wife, and the introduction of two beautiful, intelligent, and spirited daughters who very much encourage Dad's toy-buying habit, especially when it comes to Lego.
Andy’s work is heavily influenced by growing up in the 80s and 90s, and mixes western SFF with manga and anime. If he had to list the ancestry of The Only City Left series, three works would loom large: Asimov’s Foundation series, the original Star Wars trilogy, and Studio Ghibli’s The Cat Returns. Andy hopes readers enjoy adventuring in the fantastical worlds inside his head for years to come.
