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 live in a small village in the North West of England with my wife and daughter. There’s also our cat, pictured below, 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 a soft spot for cheesy rom-coms. Other likes, in no particular order, include: TV boxsets, gadgets, squash, large cups of tea and coffee, posh burgers and pizza.
