About CVB founder and author Andrew Mackay
Hey gang! My name is Andrew Mackay and I am a chart-topping Amazon author! I am also a screenwriter and former teacher.
In the summer of 2016, I hung up my teacher hat and established Chrome Valley Books; focusing on comedy, satire and thriller novels. My British satire/humor series In Their Shoes chronicles my experiences with different professions, starting with The Teacher, which topped the Amazon ‘free’ satire / dark humor charts in January of 2017.
I’m a huge fan of movies – some may even classify it as ‘geeky’. Some of my literary influences are writers Tom Sharpe, Michael Frayn, Hunter Thompson and Imogen Edwards-Jones.
I am a co-founder and co-host of one of the internet’s most-downloaded and revered movie podcasts The Smoking Lamb. (At time of writing the show has had over 1.2 million downloads. Please get in touch if you’d like to guest on the show with us. We’d love to plug your stuff – all we ask is that you’re on nodding terms with movies, generally!)
In my spare time you can find me hooked up to an IV that feeds me substances ending with ‘ine’ (caffeine, nicotine). Coffee and cigarettes are an author’s friend.
I LOVE engaging with fellow authors, fans and readers! Please get in touch – I will always respond! Email me, and please like CVB’s FB page and follow me on Twitter! There’s usually a lot of funny stuff I blurt out, retweets from other amazing authors and I have a habit of being very generous and giving things away to my fans.
