ANDREW PAUL GRELL is an accidental writer, having caught the bug from his wife, Melody Breyer-Grell, while peering over her shoulder when she was doing her Wilkes MA course work. His Biblical science fiction novel SCAPEGOATS: GOAT PROTOCOL is coming out RSN from Golden Fleece Press. His “Christmas Break Miracle” is being anthologized in SURPRISED BY JOY from Wising Up Press.  Most of Andrew’s work involves the intersection of practical science-based solutions to stupid political problems and biblical and Jewish ethics and oddities. He is a happy ending guy. Andrew lives with his wife of 30 years and their little Maltipoo puppy, Cyrus King of Persia. By day he uses his super-hero math and computer skills to ferret out fraud in the motion picture exhibition industry, a pretty cool gig.
