Andrew Dutton has been writing since the early 2000s and has previously published ‘A Mirror’, an e-book of short stories. His work often explores the lives of those at ‘the bottom of the pile’ reflecting years of work with people on low incomes and in serious debt. Born in Newcastle, Staffs, he now lives in Derbyshire and draws inspiration from the night sky, cats, music and walks with his partner and their beloved Labrador.

His first book Nocturne – Wayman’s Sky was published in 2020


Nocturne – Wayman’s Sky

and obsession with the night sky.
