Andrew G. Nelson was born and raised in New York City and graduated from the State University of New York. In 2005 he retired as a sergeant from the NYPD after twenty years of service.

He has traveled extensively throughout the United States and Europe, something that he draws from in his writing. When he is not reading or writing he can be found engaging in his other passion, collecting and researching police and WWII military memorabilia. He is the author of numerous police procedural novels, focused on the NYPD, as well as a number of non-fiction works.

When I am writing, I feel as if the characters are 'talking' to me, if they go silent I take it as they, as well as I, need a break. This can be frustrating when I am on a roll, but if I try to 'force' the conversation in my head I end up disliking the end result. Eventually they start back up, usually at around four in the morning, but such is the life of a writer.(less)

RE-RELEASE: NEW EDITION OF PERFECT PAWN - FREE: 10/18-10/20

As an author, one of the inevitable questions you face from readers is, ‘When is your next book coming out?’

While it is a welcome question, because it indicates interest in your work, it places a burden on you to continue to look forward and generate new material. That being said, sometimes you have to take a pause and look backward.

In 2012, when I wrote my debut novel, Perfect Pawn, I was a ne...

“Maybe it is time to stop blaming God for every bad thing that happens in our world and start putting the blame where it truly belongs: at humanities doorstep.”
Andrew G. Nelson, Where Was God?: An NYPD first responder’s search for answers following the terror attack of Sept 11th, 2001

“people, “just because you don’t believe in God, doesn’t mean He doesn’t believe in you.”
Andrew G. Nelson, Where Was God?: An NYPD first responder’s search for answers following the terror attack of Sept 11th, 2001

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

“Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.”
Sun Tzu, The Art of War
