Andy W Marsden writes horror stories amidst the cobwebs in his parents’ attic whilst eating Jaffa Cakes, drinking too much coffee, and listening to heavy metal. He is a big fan of Evile, Abney Park, HIM, Motion Device and The Warning. When not listening to metal, he likes many other bands and performers including Charlotte “The Glass Child” Eriksson, Michelle Branch, Stone Circle, Orla Gartland, Janet Devlin, to name a few. He can usually be found at local gigs around the Huddersfield area, (though ‘local’ is often redefined as Leeds, Sheffield or Manchester), so if you see him, don’t be afraid to say hello.
Sharing a birthday with Bela Lugosi, born in the George Eliot hospital in Nuneaton, it is no surprise he has a love of horror and writing, and works to combine them in his spare time. By day he is a Service Supervisor in a large DIY store. Beside writing, Andy is attempting to learn to play the ukulele with dubious results.
