Andrew is one of the seven original members of Gritstone Publishing Co-operative, which claims to be the UK’s first author run publishing co-operative. Gritstone specialises in publishing non-fiction and fiction titles relating to the landscape and the countryside. Its seven members are all experienced outdoor writers and journalists who have decided that, by establishing Gritstone as a fully mutual co-operative, they will be able to exercise more control over the way that their work is published.

Andrew is the author of several non-fiction books about the English landscape and outdoors and a trilogy of crime fiction titles set in the Lake District. He also writes on a range of other issues, including co-operative forms of business, community-based social enterprise and mutuality.

His latest crime novel, set in the high Lake District fells, Too Hot for Comfort was published by Gritstone in October 2020. For more details see:- http://www.andrewbibby.com/
