Andrew Duggan


Andrew Duggan's life changed on a sweltering day in Manchester, in June 1996, when the city centre was torn apart by a massive bomb explosion. Attempting to make sense of this experience, he began to write, eventually leading to his debut novel, Scars Beneath The Skin. A dark and compelling story about terrorism and survival, Scars Beneath The Skin follows Karl Dresner on a journey of salvation.
