This is Andrew. He's a bit like Bogg, the hero he created - short and a bit confused.

Background Information

The short version!: I've been interested in writing from a young age, my first attempt being a re-write of King Kong when I was probably about 8 years old (don't ask how long ago that was). I nurtured the desire to write and about 10 years after that I started to write Bogg! I have a bit of a quirky sense of humour and rather than inflict it on those close to me, I thought I would inflict it on the whole world. Regrettably, I also had to work (it's a hard life) and Bogg took a long, long time to complete with many years of nothing done. A trip to the Grand Canyon and Venezuela rejuvenated me and Bogg was completed. I still have to work. One day I hope that Bogg can take me away from the rat race. Then I can inflict even more of my weird humour on the world... ...and now the long version!: Andrew Attias was born in 1966 and was raised in Borehamwood (Hertfordshire’s answer to the East End of London) in England. He found himself studying English, Economics and Geography, although to this day he is still convinced that the latter was a plot hatched by his geography teacher and the careers advice officer. He left school to go in to international banking and also to spend many years clubbing to alternative and Goth music. He became a guitarist in a succession of bands under the Waking Up Laughing banner but retired early after finding that he was far too sexy on stage for his fellow band members to handle and also because he couldn’t actually play very well. He left international banking about a year before a certain Bank collapsed worldwide but insists he had nothing to do with this financial calamity. Instead he moved to an American Bank where he rose to Bank Manager and got totally fed up with the whole industry. A trip spent walking the Canyon Lands of Utah and Arizona only served to convince him of the need to leave the rat race as soon as possible and do something more worthwhile. Since then he has pressed ahead with his writing and spent far too short a time exploring South America. He is married to a beautiful woman with whom he shares a love of many things and they have two wonderful daughters. He has the utmost respect for his heroes, Stan Laurel and Daffy Duck whom he would love to emulate. Rumours of madness have been slightly overstated and he sometimes wonders why he started to spread them in the first place. Now back working again, he would like to get away from the rat race but has ruled out moving to a stilt hut on the banks of the Amazon River…at least for the moment.

Additional Information

I am currently taking the story of Bogg further than it has gone before...
