novelist, screenwriter and audio producer
I was born Andrew David Wice in 1974 to two Political Science professors in Pittsburgh, PA. I learned to walk in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I went to school in New Jersey. In the spring of 1991, during the first Gulf War, I served as a page in the United States Senate.
I graduated from Macalester College (St. Paul, MN) in 1996 with Honors in English for my first novel, After Bells had Rung and were Silent. Then I began my peregrinations, writing and working around the country. I used to travel in the company of a handsome border collie named Sora. Named for a Japanese poet, in 2001 he found the place I call home: Madrid, New Mexico.
Formerly an abandoned coal-mining town, Madrid is a tiny island of artists and freaks located south of Santa Fe in the high desert mountains. I was the music manager and bartender of the legendary Mineshaft Tavern. Then I worked at the magnificent Hollar Restaurant, serving great food in an atmosphere of colloquial charm.
My sixth novel, To The Last Drop was published by Bauu Press (Boulder, CO) in 2008. In 2018, the audiobook adaptation of my newest novel, The Object: a love story, was released. I have branched into audio production in addition to screenwriting, freelance journalism, haiku poetry, and computer games.
Time has passed and I have a new dog, his name is Saturn and he is good.
