Receiving his MA in Creative Writing from Northern Arizona University. 

Receiving his PhD in Education from the University of Arizona.

Andrew lives in Tucson, Arizona and has spent the last eighteen years working in Higher Education. As the instructor and advisor of undergraduate students who are the first in their families to go to college, Andrew has gained a great deal of strength and courage from his students. Having recently completed his doctoral work in Education at the University of Arizona, Andrew is now dedicating himself full-time to his fiction writing and completing and publishing his first two books. As the youngest in a Mexican-American family of six children, much of Andrew’s inspiration comes from his “Huerta-Lopez family stories.” The remainder of his fiction comes from his time in Education as well as his varied life experience in and around southern Arizona.
