By earlier in the day, he is the author of six mysteries featuring Andy Hayes, a former Ohio State and Cleveland Browns quarterback turned private eye. Of Andrew’s most recent book, Fatal Judgment, Publishers Weekly said, “Intriguing . . . Fans of Robert B. Parker's Jesse Stone books will be pleased.” Andrew is also the editor of the Columbus Noir anthology, upcoming in March from Akashic Books.
