Andrew Blackman is the author of the novel On the Holloway Road (Legend Press, 2009), which won the Luke Bitmead Writer’s Bursary and was shortlisted for the Dundee International Book Prize.

Geosi Reads: The first time I heard your name and nationality, I was a bit confused. Why Blackman? On a lighter note, which part of you is black?

The rest of the interview will be available in my forthcoming book (2016) by Lamar University Literary Press.

    This is awesome Geosi. Jealous you secure an interview with Andrew before me. I didn’t know Andrew gave up so much to be a writer. I used to work for an investment bank before, so I know.

    I will read Virtual Love soon.


  4. Deeply interesting interview, Geosi.I enjoyed every bit of it. I think Andrew is very brave to give up a such a illustrious and lucrative career to pursue his dreams. I wish I could do so 🙂
