2021 The last few years have been busy for all of us at Andy From Orkney. My cottage and the front field have flowers and hedges for the birds and butterflies to find food and shelter.  Still working on the stone wall and front steps but hope to finish them soon. Making Andy available to students and families has also been a joy.  This year we will take Andy to the US.  Hope I may visit some of my readers.

2016 has been a busy year research and writing.   The spring found Nan in Cuenca, Ecuador researching a new English/Spanish book for children about a small boy and a magical owl.


Then back in North Carolina Nan was getting to know a ‘big’  character for another new book Periwinkle.

ANDY FROM ORKNEY; A NEW SOMEONE ON HOY is now available at the Ye Old Warwick Book Shoppe at 31 Main Street, Warwick, NY.


We are please to announce the new interactive 'WHERE IN THE WORLD IS ANDY?' flyers and book marks included in the book that will direct you to Andy's Facebook page  www.facebook.com/andyfromorkney.  


It is our hope to connect Andy's readers across the world with an interactive dialogue on Facebook.  Tell Andy where you are and ask him questions about the characters, Orkney, the wildlife, geography, etc.  We are creating a map to show where our readers are in the world.
