Andy McDermott is the international bestselling author of the Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase series of adventure thrillers, the first of which, THE HUNT FOR ATLANTIS, became a New York Times bestseller on its publication in the United States. He is currently working on his 22nd novel.

Born in Halifax, England, and a graduate of Keele University, Andy now lives with his wife and son in Bournemouth, where (when not travelling the world researching future novels) he works as a full-time writer. Previously, he was an entertainment journalist and the editor of such magazines as DVD Review and the iconoclastic film publication Hotdog, where his lifelong love of movies (and vast knowledge of movie trivia) finally became a useful job skill. He has also worked as a cartoonist, graphic designer and videogame reviewer, and written for the award-winning British sci-fi comic 2000AD.
