Andrew Sanger

Novelist and travel writer


News / About / Contact


Born and brought up in London, I have travelled widely and lived in several countries, including Greece, India, the state of California in the US and several years in the Languedoc region of southern France. I earned my living mainly as a truck driver before becoming a freelance journalist and travel writer. After many years back in NW London, I now live in the New Forest, on England's south coast.

In the community...

​​Writing community
I set up Travelwriters UK, a membership website to help professional travel journalists find work, and ran it for 17 years. On moving to the New Forest I started New Forest Authors, an informal group for local members of the Society of Authors.

Local community
With other neighbours I founded an active NW London residents' association and remained its chairman for 12 years until 2013.

Jewish community
For 5 years I was the editor of Masorti Matters, quarterly magazine of the UK Masorti movement, worked as press officer for the Assembly of Masorti Synagogues and sat on Masorti Council. I served as a member of the Board of Deputies of British Jews.
I created a Masorti memorial service for those who have ever lost a new baby. Lockdowns aside, the service is held from time to time at New North London Synagogue.
After leaving London, I was for two years volunteer editor of Wessex Jewish News, principal magazine of the Jewish community in the Bournemouth area.


2022: Kindle readers - this summer a new e-book edition of The J-Word is published for Kindle: here.


This year I am writing a fifth novel. Covering a whole century, it's about a vicious rivalry between two families in East London.


NOVEL IDEA: two for the price of one - The Slave + The J-Word = £8.99 (+£3p&p in UK). Direct from me, see contact below.

GUIDEBOOKS GIVEAWAY: travel guides free of charge here.

Other work...

My journalism has occasionally wandered from travel into book reviews and articles on Jewish issues, as well as interviews, notably with Ken Livingstone while mayor of London for the Sunday Times and author Lawrence Durrell for the Guardian.
