Biography

Mr. Nash is a professional land surveyor and has worked in most western states and B.C. Canada. His additional outdoor activities includes: hunting, fishing, hiking, and gold prospecting, all of which have given him a unique perspective when writing stories taking place in the wilds.

He truly enjoys the research involved in his works, which are mostly historical fiction filled with action and adventure. However, to qualify his book titled, Who Is - Jesus Christ, Stewart has been a biblical student for many years and served in churches as a deacon, a message presenter, and Sunday School teacher.
He lives with his wife Sandy, of 26 years, and together they have six children and enjoy 13 grandchildren.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
When I was fifteen I sent an article to Outdoor Life Magazine about my father and I on a couple of big game hunts. The story was rejected as it wasn’t of the quality for their magazine. I was somewhat disappointed, but at least I tried. I didn’t write anything else until I was asked, as a licensed land surveyor, to give a presentation on surveying to a college class. Putting it all down on paper, re-reading, and editing seemed a fun and interesting thing to do. Before being licensed, I had thought about the different ways an individual could make money on an ongoing basis. I couldn’t sing worth a hoot to make a record, and had no interest in musical instruments. Writing was the only other potential I could think of. I started to write articles for the state surveyors magazine, telling of unusual incidents while surveying. I didn’t seriously consider writing a novel until I was in my fifties.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I was semi-retired and was living in a motor home between Arizona and B.C. Canada, depending on the time of year. This full time motor home thing was because our house didn’t sell for three years. I had been considering writing a novel similar to an actual incident that happened to a U.S. Forest Service surveyor, who was killed on a mountain top in Montana by an escapee from a mental institution. While in Arizona I had the time; keyboard on my lap, the monitor and desktop on a board between the driver and passenger seat, and with the small television on, I wrote the complete story, which took place where I had surveyed in the Colorado mountains. That novel is titled, 'Third Man On The Mountain,' an e-book.
