  • About Me

    My debut novel, The Miracle Girl, will be published by Algonquin Books in April 2015. My fiction has appeared in One Story, Tin House, Glimmer Train, The Sun, The Cincinnati Review, Slice, Opium, Salt Flats Annual, Avery Anthology, Failbetter, Hobart, Storyglossia, Night Train, Juked and other publications. I live in Oceanside, California, with my wife and three children. There are other things, too, but that's all for now.

    Why do you write?

    I write because... not writing doesn't seem like an option.

    Kumar, Applejack, Robby, Bob...

    Man, I did miss some key players in the story. I watch that movie every year at least. Love it. Thanks for checking in. Dude, Left of the Dial and Bottle're good in my book.

    Grand salami in SLQ. I tuck my five-year-old son in every night, and I will be thinking of this story every night I do so for a long while.

    "I tell my son that his grandfather loved him very much, that he liked tennis, that he was funny and liked to joke, and that we're all very sad he's not here." Outstanding sentence in a magnificent story.

    David Erlewine – Oct 05, 2009

    oh and thanks for not pointing out that i sorta just "ruined" the fantasy numbers by my comment. ha ha

    David Erlewine – Oct 05, 2009

    hey andy, my pleasure on the comment. i had to say something! unbelievable (well deserved of course)...and yeah reminded me of the opposite of that dude they used to make fun of - John Koncak? - who would often have 14 (min) 0 0 0 6 (personal fouls). that always killed me.

    David Erlewine – Sep 09, 2009

    Thanks, Andrew, for the feedback on "The Fair". The fathers in my stories always tend to be sort of like this guy. Either that or total ninnies. Hmm...

    In any event, I'm thrilled you liked the piece. Take care, David

    Andrew Roe – Sep 04, 2009

    Hello Katrina! Yes, I made it. The swim was long but well worth it.

    Katrina Denza – Sep 04, 2009

    Andy! You're here!

    Andrew Roe – Sep 03, 2009

    Hey, thanks, David. I appreciate the kind words and the welcome.

    David Erlewine – Sep 03, 2009

    I'm still catching up on all of your great work, but your piece in Freight Stories is amazing. Great to have you here.
