Andrew Lane is the author of more than twenty books: some are original novels set in the same universes as the BBC TV programmes Doctor Who
and Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased);
some are contemporary novels written under a pseudonym; and some are non-fiction books concerning specific film and TV programme characters (notably James Bond
, and Wallace and Gromit
). He is also the author of the Young Sherlock Holmes
series of young adult novels.
Andrew lives in Dorset with his wife, his son and a vast collection of Sherlock Holmes books, the purchase of which over the past twenty years is now a justifiably tax-deductible expense.
What books should everyone read while they’re young?The Hobbit
, Stig of the Dump
and the Tripods
trilogy by John Christopher (The White Mountains
, The City of Gold and Lead
and The Pool of Fire
). Also, of course, anything by Steve Cole, especially the Astrosaurs
and Cows in Action
series . . .
