Stuart Taylor


Hi, My name is Stuart Taylor and I write 'The Austin Chronicles' adventure stories. My books are like the stories I loved as a boy. The Austin Chronicles are full of computers and mechanical things like cars, motorbikes, and submarines and flying machines and simple fantasy-scientific themes. My books are fast-paced and although intended for children, I'm always amazed at how many adults tell me they enjoy them too.

Happy reading and very best wishes,

Stuart Taylor
