Andy Briggs (born 27 September 1972 in Liverpool, England)[1] is a British author and screenwriter. He wrote the Hero.com series and the Villain.net young adult novels, which are due to be developed into a television movie.

Briggs career began as an uncredited writer working on story development for Highlander: The Series in 1991. Since then he has worked alone and with brother Peter Briggs on a number of projects, including the Stan Lee and Robert Evans Paramount Pictures project Foreverman. More recent television work has included story development for the Sci-Fi Channel, BKN Kids and Disney XD.

In the mid-2000s he did some writing for comics,[2] and began to develop his Hero.com/Villain.net series of young adult novels.[3] This led to new series of young adult Tarzan novels.[4]

Briggs has acknowledged Gordon Boshell's "Captain Cobwebb" books as an early influence.[5]
