Andrew wrote his first novel, Face of the Earth, in 1977 and then moved to Putnam County, where he worked as a reporter for a local newspaper. His experience covering local crime later formed the basis for his novel Corruption.
After Face of the Earth was published, Andrew returned to New York City. During this time he wrote The Scarred Man using the pseudonym Keith Peterson. And his book, The Rain, won an Edgar Award for Best Original Paperback.
Andrew's newest novel, a political thriller entitled Empire of Lies, was released on June 19, 2008.
