The mutant lovechild of Dorothy Parker, Oscar Wilde, Teresa of Avila and Fyodor Dostoevsky, Andrew Ford is an existential bon vivant, writer and aspiring nineteenth-century Romantic. Sadly, he has yet to contact tuberculosis, but it’s on his to-do list for 2015.
Hailed as one of the most unique voices writing today, Mr. Ford’s blog, A Red State Mystic, is highly regarded for its depth and lyricism. It’s been called “the best blog you’ve never heard of” and “the blog I love to read but am too afraid to share!” An avid reader, Mr. Ford covers everything from music to spirituality to Russian novels to Existentialism to Appalachian LGBT issues and back again. His writings have been featured on The New Yorker website and Andrew Sullivan’s The Daily Dish. As an aspiring Twitterleberity, Mr. Ford (@andrewnford) will proudly share he is followed by Deborah Voigt (his “#bestie”), Gerald Finley and several other musical and literary luminaries.
He has several short fiction pieces pending publication.
