The Book Loft Presents: Andrew Welsh-Huggins

RSVP is appreciated but not required

An in-store event with Andrew Welsh-Huggins
----------------------------------------------------
Andrew is a Shamus, Derringer, and International Thriller Writers-award nominated mystery author of eleven books with more in the works.

His latest novel, The End of the Road, was named one of the best thrillers of the first half of 2023 by Library Journal and called by Kirkus, “A crackerjack crime yarn chockablock with miscreants and a supersonic pace.”

Andrew's seven-volume (with an eighth on the way) Andy Hayes series features a former Ohio State and Cleveland Browns quarterback turned investigator. “Readers who love old-fashioned detective novels will be in hog heaven as they tear into Welsh-Huggins’ latest adventure featuring Andy Hayes,” said Booklist of Fatal Judgment.

Andrew is also the editor of the Columbus Noir anthology from Akashic Books, a collection of fourteen mystery stories each set in a different Columbus neighborhood, named one of CrimeReads’ most anticipated crime books of 2020.

Andrew’s short mystery fiction has appeared in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine, Mystery Weekly, and many others. His stories have also appeared in multiple anthologies, including Best American Mystery Stories 2021; Mickey Finn 21st Century Noir, Vols. 1, 3 and 4; Paranoia Blues: Crime Fiction Inspired by the Songs of Paul Simon; Groovy Gumshoes: Private Eyes in the Psychedelic Sixties; and the 2021 Bouchercon convention anthology, This Time for Sure. Andrew’s story, "The Murderous Type," won the 2017 Al Blanchard Prize for Best New England Short Crime Story.

In addition, Andrew is the author of two nonfiction books. No Winners Here Tonight, the definitive history of Ohio's death penalty, and Hatred At Home, about the terrorism prosecution of three Ohio friends, which Current Reviews for Academic Libraries called “the most thorough case study of the radicalization of domestic ‘sleeper cells’ to date.”

When he’s not writing or reporting, Andrew enjoys running, reading, cooking, playing the piano, spending time with family, and trying to remember why having both cats and parakeets seemed like a good idea at the time.
