About the Author

A veteran law enforcement officer, Stu has worked as a beat cop, an investigator, an instructor of firearms and police defensive tactics and as a member and team leader of a multi-jurisdictional SWAT team. He is trained and qualified as a law enforcement SWAT sniper, as well as in hostage rescue and high-risk entry tactics. Most recently, Stu served for three years with a U.S. Marshal’s Regional Fugitive Task Force - hunting the worst of the worst.

A genuine renaissance man, Stu is an Eagle Scout, a lifelong martial artist, and an avid outdoorsman. In addition, he enjoys cooking, has a soft spot for dogs, and can be coaxed into talking to strangers upon the introduction of a fine craft beer.

Stu’s passion for writing developed during his years in college while obtaining his bachelor’s degree in history. In the time since, Stu has published three faith-based post-apocalyptic novels – the Action of Purpose trilogy .

Stu's most recent work is a futuristic thriller, It Takes Death To Reach A Star, written with co-author Gareth Worthington (Children of the Fifth Sun). It will be published by Vesuvian books in 2018. Stu is represented by Italia Gandolfo of Gandolfo-Helin-Fountain literary management and is currently working with Gareth Worthington on the follow-up to "Star".

He lives in Alabama with his wife and two children.
