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. This textbook was translated into Korean by Pagijong Press, Seoul, South Korea. 2010.

I am presently writing my third Ryan and Gillian novel, The Nathan Culper Brotherhood. You can follow my progress on novel #3 here at this blog site.

To order any of my titles please go either to nook.com or amazon.com (Kindle users can go to the Kindle Store.).

Reviewer qualifications

I'm disturbed that a volunteer reviewer gave my second novel --- The China-Africa Parallax: A Ryan and Gillian Mystery --- a cynical, 2-star review. The reviewer has confused a major character with a very, very minor one, has garbled the plot, and has criticized the novel in a provincial manner. Potential readers will find the review off-putting...for many wrong reasons! I guess I'm a writer now, putting up with mindless grievances from a volunteer who just doesn't quite get it.
