Andrew was born in North London, where he spent my early working life at Smithfield Meat Market, where there has been a Hixson family member since the Victorian era, and there still is to this day.
He moved to Suffolk in 1978, where he stayed in the food manufacturing trade with Dalgety-Spillers and Unilever until 2008.
Following that, he worked for a third party logisitcs company that changed it's name three times in six years. In 2015, he took a career break and started working on his series of detective novels about a lateral thinking private detective who lives in a fictional Suffolk coastal town.
He is looking forward to further enhancing his career by joining the East Anglian Writing Society and building a persoanl brand promoting himself using Social Networking.
He is married with to grown up daughters, and two granddaughters with another grandchild expected in September.
His interests include the theatre, cinema and reading. He also enjoys playing golf and ballroom dancing with his wife. He grows his own vegetables in his small Suffolk garden and loves experimenting in the kitchen with different and varied recipes.
