Born on the Wirral, I live in Spain for the present, but my dream is to retire (Hah, what is that? Retire???) and live on a narrowboat along one of the many waterways around the Welsh border. That would be exciting I reckon. An outdoor life, quiet, relaxed, with plenty of time to write. I’ve done a lot of things in my life, and now work as a teacher, a profession I’ve been in for almost 25 years, but writing is my first love. As Stuart G Yates I have a growing number of books available in a wide range of genres. UNFLINCHING shot to number one in Canada! I also write as John Stuart Cooper, concentrating on Westerns, so if you get the chance pick up my first ‘He Who Comes’. Watch out for more titles, they’ll be appearing soon.In 2009 my first book was published under the pseudonym Glenn Stuart, and I wrote and had published 10 YA novels. I have now moved away from these books and am now re-writing many of them, publishing them under my name Stuart G Yates. I write adult thrillers (some of them might be classed as cross-overs, that means they are also suitable for teenagers), historical and speculative fiction and, most recently Westerns. This will be my main direction now. My historical novels tracing the life of Harald Hardrada, are available here in paperback and for the Kindle. A sweeping story full of treachery and murder, I’m sure you’ll find lots to enjoy in this series. VARANGIAN is the first, ORIGINS the latest, which goes back in time to reveal who Harald was, how he developed into the legendary figure he became in parts 1 and 2. I am presently working on the 4th volume. I also have plans for a Viking book or two based in the Wirral back in the early 9th century. I’ve been doing a lot of research around this, my fascination springing from the numerous Scandinavian sounding names of towns and places in the area where I grew up – Thingwall, Irby, Pensby, all good, Viking names! My most successful series is that of the Western hero Detective Simms, who works for the Pinkerton Agency. A veteran of the Mexican War, Simms is a frontiersman, hard and resourceful. The first in the series (which gives the series its name) is UNFLINCHING and has proved to be my most successful book to date. I have written five in the series so far. It is a well-received series of novels which I think will appeal to anyone, not just lovers of the genre, who enjoys fast-paced mysteries. Another series ‘To Kill A Man’ is now published. A trilogy of Westerns. I will be writing more Unflinching westerns with the occasional thriller thrown in. Fortunately, I love writing, and virtually every day I get something down on my word processor. I love to create worlds, characters, events. Often I have a plan to follow, and I know the direction, but what happens in-between is sometimes not even up to me. Things simply take over. So, to sum up, there may be a lot to do, but I love it and when you love something, it is never a chore!2018 was yet another busy year, and an eventful one as I married my very lovely girlfriend Janice. I’m still working in Spain and I’m still dreaming of writing full-time. I hope you are able to come along for the ride. Stay well, buy my books, and smile.
