Get to Know Heyward’s Creator Andrew Barton 

Hi, I’m Andrew, creator of the Heyward the Horse books! 

I hope you and the young readers in your life enjoy reading about Heyward as much as I enjoyed bringing his stories to life. 

A little about me: I’m a designer and illustrator living in Charleston, S.C. My wife and I have three kids so I’ve read a lot of children’s books. Bonding with my kids over books is one of my favorite things! 

I decided to write my own books combining my love of history and drawing. Certainly Charleston has no shortage of history so it was only fitting these books were inspired by the city I’ve called home for more than a decade.
