About This Site

Hi, I'm Andy Engelson, a writer and editor who lived in Hanoi for five years and now lives in Geneva Switzerland. This blog is no longer active, but you can find more of my writing at The Lost Salt Atlas. I'm currently working on a historical novel set in the Northwest United States during World War II. In a former life, I edited Washington Trails magazine. I like to hike, travel, and play with my family.


The novel is an art form and when you use it for anything other than art, you pervert it. . . If you manage to use it successfully for social, religious, or other purposes, it is because you made art first. — Flannery O’Connor, Letters
