Below is a listing of all of Andrew’s published work, whether it is part of an anthology, a collection, or a novel of his own.

Bent But Not Broken

With Jodi Wilks-Butters and Avery Butters

Bent But Not Broken is a heartfelt journey of Andrew’s daughter, and family, as they navigate the healthcare system from diagnosis to surgery, and beyond. Follow them as they use their own words in blog posts and through an emotional and gripping narrative that puts you by our side through it all. The ups and downs and challenges and successes of the experience changed their lives and taught them that compassion and love build strong communities, even stronger families, and that true strength comes from the most unlikely sources.

The Darwin Awards III: Survival of the Fittest

by Wendy Northcutt

While he did not receive any writing credit for this contribution, he did get a free copy of the book and a t-shirt. This book contains Andrew’s first published words (around 500 of them, actually). Who would have thought that lighting one’s self on fire could be so funny? You can read the story on the Darwin Awards website under the title The Barbequed Chef or buy the book and read the whole collection (it’s hilarious in an “OMG human civilization is doomed” sort of way).
