Profile Information

My name is Andy Paine. I wish my name was Tom Foolery, but it’s not, which is a shame.

At some stage I was born, or so the documents say. I have always daydreamed, and always written, but sadly for a long time I did the two independently. Luckily adulthood, what with all its ’employment,’ gave me both the opportunity and incentive to combine them. Finally the penny dropped, and after picking it up I said to myself, ‘you should write a story, and you should stop dropping pennies.’ For perhaps the first time in my life I listened to myself.

Naturally I guess, my writing manifests as a form of happy nonsense. The style is unashamedly rambunctious, and filled with linguistic silliness, with the quite modest aim of making readers smile. I have searched tirelessly for some profound message in my words, but I can’t locate one. I’m sure its there, I am an author after all!

Bad Business is the first outing in my comic fantasy series, The Titanic TalesBad Business is a big story about small business, lampooning everything from Government, and fashion, to consultants and the justice system. 

Dumb Luck is the second installment in the series, and is due for release early 2017.

I am also working on Wealth Care, and Raw Games, the next two cabs off of the Titanic Tales ranks.
