About



So who is this S.D. Robertson chap?

Hello. Pleased to meet you. Feel free to call me Stuart. S.D. sounds weird on its own.

I worked for almost a decade as a journalist before leaving my position as a local newspaper editor to pursue a lifelong ambition of becoming a novelist. I suspected making up my own stories would be more fun. I was right.

An English graduate from the University of Manchester, I tried my hand at a few other things before I started writing for a living. I’ve been a holiday rep, door-to-door salesman, train cleaner, kitchen porter and mobile phone network engineer. I’ve also spent time living in France, Holland and Australia.

Home these days is back in the UK. I live in a small village near Manchester with my lovely wife and daughter. There’s also Bernard, our cat, who likes to distract me from writing - usually by breaking things.

I love books (obviously). I also like to think of myself as a bit of a film buff, despite having an embarrassing soft spot for rom-coms.  Other likes, in no particular order, include: gadgets, squash, large cups of tea and coffee, bottle-aged Negroni, posh burgers and spicy pizza.
