About the Author

Andy Rose spent 42 years working in public education. He began his career as a fifth-grade teacher in New York's Lower East Side. Many of his students there were part of dysfunctional families, or were involved in violent gangs. After realizing that he had ambitions beyond the classroom, he moved to New Jersey, where his career as an educator was distinguished by the passionate support he received from teachers, parents, and the public at large, who appreciated his integrity-based approach to leadership and consensus building. He served four years as a building principal and 25 years as Chief School Administrator of the Norwood Public School District in Bergen County.

His debut novel, Lily's Payback, was a spicy thriller that portrayed schoolteachers in a role they're typically not seen—that of the avenger. Lily's Payback won awards from The London International and The Midwest Book Festivals. His short story, Little Feather, won a 2016 Writer's Digest competition.

He focuses on writing and presenting a program, Ignite Your Dreams, to inspire others to tell their stories.
