I've always written, submitting my first completed novel back in 1979. But in 2009 i was fortunate to have my first book published, as Glenn Stuart. I then went on to write another 8 young adult novels.
I decided to change direction and, as Stuart G Yates, I now write adult thrillers and historical fiction. I am working on a series of books about Harald Hardrada, which are doing quite well.
Writing is hard work. I do the best I can, writing at weekends and during holidays. I'm a full-time teacher, but my plan is to get a further 5 books published in 2015. This will bring my total up to 21 titles in all.
I'm working on a number of different projects, so I'm kept very busy. Although I'm still in Spain, I miss home very much and long to be there. Maybe one day soon.
Robert Parker John Harvey, and Robert Goddard are my favourite authors. I love mysteries, and Goddard's ability to weave together his tales has always inspired me. I also read a lot of history. It sometimes helps with the research!
When I'm not writing, I spend what little time I have reading and watching movies. And my dog George keeps me company!
