Andy Ruffell grew up in Kent but has spent almost all of his adult life living and working in Teesside and now lives in North Yorkshire. He always dreamed of writing a novel but was too afraid to start. Having worked as a teacher and head teacher for many years, Andy has written lots of extracts for children in school but never shared anything beyond the classroom walls. Undone is his debut novel. He lives in Hutton Rudby with his wife and two daughters.
