Originally from Liverpool, England, Andy now calls the mighty Waikato home. After completing university, Andy spent a fair few years wandering the globe – collecting experiences, embarking on adventures, and discovering new cultures, tastes, and sounds – which has led to his healthy obsession with travel, creativity, and humour.
Andy is a proud father of two: Halia Johanna – a super-observant, hilarious little tinker with more than a hint of her mother’s artistic leaning; and Lewis Edison – a fearless and curious pioneer with boundless energy and aversion for rules.
Plus, Andy Hardman is a sucker for a good limerick:
Andy hails from NZ,
His books are engaging when read,
They have an underlying meaning,
Kids find subtly appealing,
And are perfect for daytime or bed.
