Award-winning author of Grasshopper Jungle and Winger.

Andrew Smith has always wanted to be a writer. After graduating college, he wrote for newspapers and radio stations, but found out it wasn’t the kind of writing he’d dreamed about doing.

Born with an impulse to travel, he bounced around the world and from job to job, before settling down in Southern California. There, he got his first ‘real job’, as a teacher in an alternative educational program for at-risk teens, married, and moved to a rural mountain location. Smith has now written several award-winning novels including Wingers and The Marbury Lens.

Grasshopper Jungle is his first book to publish in the UK. He lives with his wife, two children, two horses, three dogs, three cats and an irritable lizard called Leo.
