Welcome to Larry Andrews' website.

Greetings and welcome to my blog spot.

I've written two novels since my retirement in 2008. The first is a romance, Songs of Sadness, Songs of Love. The second is an action/mysteryThe China-Africa Parallax: A Ryan and Gillian Mystery.

Among the textbooks I have written areLinguistics for L2 Teachers, Mahwah, NJ, Lawrence Earlbaum Associates, 2001; and Language Exploration and Awareness: A Resource Book for Teachers, 3rd edition, Mahwah, NJ, Lawrence Earlbaum Associates, 2006.

Postal Worker Steals My Novel

Larry Andrews, a retired University of Nebraska professor living in Lincoln, NE, never thought his first novel was very good. "It was, after all," he says, "my first attempt at a novel. It's not valuable enough or good enough for anyone to steal a copy."

He was wrong.

His on-line agent sent him a request for a .pdf file of the novel, Songs of Sadness, Songs of Love, to send to a reviewer. "A postal  worker in the mail room apparently stole the paperback copy you sent me," his agent told him.

Andrews was stunned. "I never thought the novel was good enough for someone to break federal law and steal a copy from the US post. Who knew?"
