Welcome and thanks for visiting.

Dead Star Island, published by Alliance Publishing Press, can be ordered via Amazon or Waterstones.com.

There’s plenty to explore on this website, including a section on Dead Star Island, where you can meet Gunzabo (Greece’s most famous one-armed detective), see a map of the island, apply to live there, and take a quiz to guess who its famous residents might be.

I concentrate primarily on fiction these days, but I’ve also added some pages of old song lyrics from my days of playing in bands, which you can find here. There are also various articles and blog pieces I’ve written, listed here.

Do have a look around and feel free to get in touch.

Reviews of Dead Star Island:

A trippy page turner.
The Sunday Mirror
A confident, bold debut from Andrew Shantos.
Club Life Magazine
…a hefty dose of wacky conspiracy theory… fun, and clever, and very original.
Alice's Adventures in Bookland
Crazy genius… this is a gem of a story.

'A trippy page turner.'
