Hi, I’m ShortAxle, Andrew Charman, living with my family in beautiful mid Wales in the UK and a journalist since 1985.
I trained on newspapers, eventually editing a couple as well as motoring magazines in the new car, modified car, classic car and motorsport sectors.
Since the turn of the millennium I’ve been a freelance, mainly in the motoring and motorsport market but more recently diversifying into heritage rail and engineering – part of my monthly job these days is to edit the magazines Narrow Gauge World and Engineering in Miniature. I’ve also written three books with more on the way.
You will find extensive examples of my work on the portfolio pages of my website, here.
Should you wish to get hold of me, and particularly if you want to offer me some work, you’ll find me at;
12 Maes Gwyn, Llanfair Caereinion, Powys,
