Larry Andrews is referred to by his friends as a true renaissance man. Of Danish/Swedish ancestry, he developed a mastery of skills in multiple fields and disciplines over the years. Following military service, a career in aerospace would be shaped from the early days of rocketry through the launching of communication satellites and the moon landing. After a career as a rocket scientist and aerospace program manager, he taught graduate courses at the University of Southern California. He assisted in the establishment of an ISO committee for Space Operations and became the Chair of the U.S. delegation, traveling to many of the space-faring nations. His aerospace background is reflected in his early Romantic/Sci-Fi novel A Space Oddity. He has become an avid worldwide traveler and his novels reflect heavily on the locations, people and cultures he is exposed to. Larry hopes you will enjoy reading his works which capture and apply his story-telling and vivid conversational skills that make his books come alive. Building on romance and intrigue, he combines tension, suspense, and surprise within a vivid travelogue adventure. This is certainly true in his latest romantic/crime/adventure novels The Caribbean Endeavor and Terror in Tuscany. They are the beginning of a series reflecting the adventures of young CIA agent Marcus Peterson.
