Andrew Neiderman (born October 26, 1940 in Brooklyn, N.Y.), is an American novelist. In 1987, he became the ghost writer for V. C. Andrews following her death in 1986. He formerly taught English at Fallsburg Jr./Sr. High School, in upstate New York. Neiderman is married to the former model Diane Wilson. They have two children, Melissa, a teacher in Rancho Mirage, California, and Erik, a jet pilot. They have three grandchildren: Dustin, a musician who attends college in Los Angeles, Hannah Rose, and Emily Grace, the latter two both models in LA.

Neiderman is arguably best known as the author of The Devil's Advocate, later adapted into the film The Devil's Advocate, and the screenwriter who adapted Rain, based on a series of novels released under Andrews' name.

Andrew Neiderman has written the libretto for a musical stage adaptation of The Devil's Advocate.[1]

He also co-authored the screenplay for Duplicates, a USA cable movie of the week, and has had six other of his novels adapted into films.

With the publication of Guardian Angel by Dorchester Publishers in January 2010, Neiderman has, between his V. C. Andrews novels and those under his name, reached 100 published novels.

A resident of Palm Springs, California, Neiderman was honored with a Golden Palm Star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars on October 17, 1997.[2][3]
