Stuart Ayris was born in the Summer of 1969 in Dagenham, just on the border of East London. School was largely unproductive so his early adult years were spent putting up stalls at Romford Market, working in a record shop, gardening and road sweeping. After resigning from an insurance company to play in a band, he found myself unemployed for two years in the early nineties. It was during this time, at the age of 22, that he wrote his first novel - A Cleansing of Souls. Stuart wrote his second novel, Tollesbury Time Forever, between 2008 and 2011. This would become the first book of the FRUGALITY Trilogy - the second being The Bird That Nobody Sees, which was published in July 2012. The final part of the trilogy - I Woke Up This Morning -
was released in April 2013.In terms of writing, his heroes are Jack Kerouac, John Steinbeck, Kris Kristofferson, Bob Dylan and Tom Waits. In between writing novels, Stuart Ayris has been married twice, has three children and has worked as a mental health nurse since 1997.
