Andrew Moriarty is a published Canadian author known for his science fiction novels.

Like many science fiction authors, Andrew has spent his entire life reading science fiction. He always managed to wonder things about the stories that he had read along the way. Moriarty would turn his mind to inquisitive things like wondering how the mortgage on a space ship was paid for, why it didn’t ever seem to show the need to be refueled, if when it broke they had to order parts and whether they were on back order for weeks, and why no one has to charge sales tax in space.

Moriarty did not think that it was likely that he would get the answers to these questions, and so he thought that he would write a book of his own that also included details about how the space ships actually worked in the real world. After all, ships like that need fuel to run, the fuel to run it usually costs money, and accounts end up running everything most of the time, something that is somewhat overlooked in other stories in the genre and never quite fully satisfactorily explained.

The author was born in Canada, but has lived in many other places along the way in the course of his life. He has resided in Germany, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Toronto, and Maastricht. He has held many jobs along the way, working as everything from a pizza delivery driver to a technology trainer to a wedding disc jockey and a telephone newspaper subscriptions salesman. He has also been in the IT industry quite a bit, working on configuring routers and switches and designing networks.

He also is married to a former spy with a preference for French champagne and they share a dog that loves tennis balls. The family lives all together in Brooklyn.

Moriarty is the author of the Adventures of a Jump Space Accountant series of fictional novels, which first got started in 2017 with the publication of Trans Galactic Insurance. He also penned the Decline and Fall of the Galactic Empire series, which first became available to readers in 2022 with the publication of the debut novel in the series, Imperial Deserter.

Trans Galactic Insurance is the first novel in the Adventures of a Jump Space Accountant series by Andrew Moriarty. If you love a good science fiction novel or have a fondness for space operas, then give this debut a try and see what you think!

It was a long time ago that the Galactic Empire disappeared. Main character Jake Stewart knows this, but it’s not exactly the type of thing that he can focus on. He is desperate to make a living just like everyone else and can’t be bothered to be hung up on the past when it’s long gone anyway and he needs food in his stomach.

Jake ran away from the outer Belt station where he was positioned and signed up for the merchant academy. He was even able to get a scholarship somehow through some stroke of luck, and is thinking that at last things might finally be working out for him and the future might be not so bad after all.

That quickly turns around when he encounters some problems with paperwork, a crooked boss, and a best friend that isn’t exactly pulling their weight. Then Jake is accused of committing a crime that he didn’t do– a murder. So he decides that it’s about time to escape the Planetary Militia and try to do something to get out of the bind that he finds himself in.

Jake has just his own wits and an attractive girl who appears to be trying to help him out to keep him out of jail. He has no idea what her agenda is and if he can rely on her to help prove that he’s innocent. But he might just have no other choice other than to trust her if he wants to get himself out of this jam and stay a free man. Can Jake figure out how to get out of this mess and avoid getting captured, or will he find that he’s landed himself in an impossible position? Read this science fiction adventure to find out!

Orbital Claims Adjuster is the second novel in the Adventures of a Jump Space Accountant series by Andrew Moriarty. Jake is back again for more action, so if you loved the events of the first novel, check out the second installment and see what happens!

Jake may just be starting out as a spy, but he’s already prepared to be a hero. However, he’s starting to find out that his boss wants more of a delivery driver. Jake’s doing his best but the position requires a lot of him. It’s not exactly easy.

When he lands in jail thanks to a pickup gone wrong and a drunken mistake, he is immediately instructed to serve in the Militia for his sentence. The new commander doesn’t like him at all and wants to see him dispatched– and probably wouldn’t mind too much if he were thrown out of an airlock. But the conscript he’s working with is nice, and even has an attractive sister who happens to be single, too.

Things take a turn for the more complicated for Jake when a shooting accidentally happens and his friend Nadine comes on board. All of a sudden, the girls on the ship don’t trust him, he’s being chased through the rings by armed ships, and Mr. Dashi isn’t picking up. He’s not sure whether this is what Mr. Dashi planned for or if he’s just fallen into a whole new load of trouble all on his own.

Jake’s used to his luck being bad, but this is just getting out of hand. The novice spy is going to have to figure things out on the fly as he always does and rely on his wits and quick thinking to get ahead of it all. Can Jake figure a way to set things right again, or is he finally in over his head? Read Orbital Claims Adjuster to find out!
