Hi,

So, I’m Andrew.  I’m 26 years old and live just south of London, England.  I’ve just finished a PhD in chemical physics and right now I’m kicking around waiting for someone to offer me a real job (or at least an interview…).

I started dabbling with the idea of writing when I was about 20.  Of course, at the time I figured I’d just write a novel straight off.  I tried that twice and, equally of course, neither got far.  I’d say I’ve been writing semi-seriously for a couple of years, concentrating on short stories to develop some kind of proficiency for what I’m trying to achieve (I hope). 

So, yeah, that’s it.  Any questions?  Nup, thought not…

A.

Hi Andrew! Glad you’ve joined us. smile

I’m always suprised when I see someone with a technical or science background who is also into the creative writing aspects. For many years, I always figured that people tended to be one or another. It’s really cool to see my biases get blown.

Yeah, I have computer algorithms that write my stories for me.  Don’t blame me, blame the code.

Hello Andrew. I’m not astonished at all. I know several great piano players and Cello players,who are also mathematic teachers…

I thought music WAS mathematics.  Applied, like.
