More About the Author

Hi, My name is Stuart Taylor and I write 'The Austin Chronicles' series of children's adventure stories.

The titles available presently are:

Book 1 - Austin
Book 2 - Austin and the Secret of Karnak House
Book 3 - Austin and the Lost Kingdom of Atlantis

The Austin Chronicles are full of computers and mechanical things like cars, motorbikes, and submarines and flying machines and absorbing fantasy-scientific themes. My influences include, Guillermo del Toro, the writer and director of the adult feature film Pan's Labyrinth, C.S. Lewis, and Philip Reeve.

The Austin Chronicles are fast-moving stories with short chapters and cliffhanger endings. Although intended for children, I'm always amazed at how many adults tell me they love my books too.

I have contributed interview features to a number of UK magazines in which I've written about a wide variety of people from T.V. and film professional model makers, a film director, a well-known novelist and a man who works for a company who makes racing cars out of 1930s Austin Seven motor cars! I enjoy writing a regular column in a national magazine and blogging. My author blog is called Bill's Blog at:

For those interested in following my work there is a free copy of "Submarines of Yore" available for subscribers of Bill's Blog, so register today! :O)

Happy reading and very best wishes,

Stuart Taylor
