Bio: Andrew Smith enjoys music, writing, traveling, martial arts, and switching colleges and majors, just to keep things interesting. He is Syracuse University class of 2006, with a degree in Religion and minor in Music Industry, because they clearly go so well together. Andrew grew up in the Rockies, where he drank, drinks, and will continue to drink more coffee than is probably advisable. He is currently at work on other projects, such as more Woven City novels, some non-Woven City novels, and learning to speak Portuguese so he knows what all that Brazilian pop music is really saying. Crusader is Andrew Smith's first published novel. He owes the completion of it to the fabulous coffee chicks, who fueled his addiction with coffee in all its myriad forms. Except decaf.
