Stewart Ross - Author

About the Author

After several years teaching at a variety of institutions in Britain, the USA, the Middle East and Sri Lanka, Stewart Ross became a full-time writer eleven years ago. With over 175 published titles to his credit, in a remarkably short time he has become one of Britain’s most popular and versatile authors.

As well as prize-winning books for children, both fiction and non-fiction, he has written two popular novels, two plays, two librettos, and several widely acclaimed historical works, particularly on Scotland. His books, several of which are illustrated with his own photographs, have been translated into about a dozen languages.

Current projects include a third adult novel, five volumes in Hodder's Survivors series of children's historical fiction, more volumes in their Stories From History for young children, several other historical stories and works of non-fiction, a Jubilee revue, and a musical with Paul Englishby (musical director of Captain Corelli's Mandolin'). A frequent lecturer, notably on the QE2, and occasional journalist and broadcaster, Stewart lives near Canterbury with his wife and four children. Each morning escapes domestic hubbub by commuting ten metres to work in a large hut in the garden.
