Andrew Barrett is a British author from Leeds who has made a name for himself writing detective crime fiction.

He was born to a transport manager and a seamstress in a suburb of Leeds, where he was the youngest of three siblings. He went to school at Royds School and proceeded to undertake a mechanical engineering and electrical degree at Kitson College.

After completing his college studies, he got a job with contractor that took him to the Middle East.
