About the Author

   ​
A career law enforcement officer with over a decade of experience, Stu has worked as a beat cop, an investigator, an instructor, and as a member and team leader of a multi-jurisdictional SWAT team. He is also trained and qualified as a law enforcement SWAT sniper, as well as in hostage rescue and high-risk entry tactics. Most recently, Stu worked for three years with a U.S. Marshal’s Regional Fugitive Task Force conducting thousands of high-risk fugitive apprehension operations throughout the southeastern United States.

A genuine renaissance man, Stu is an Eagle Scout, a lifelong martial artist, and an avid hunter and outdoorsman. In addition, he enjoys cooking, has a soft spot for dogs, and can occasionally 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 .

Most recently, Stu wrote a futuristic thriller, It Takes Death To Reach A Star, 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 ITDTRAS.

He lives in Alabama with his wife and two children.
