Children's books author Stewart Ross – Miles KellyPrize-winning author Stewart Ross was inspired to write by his great-grandfather, a vast Scotsman with a spreading beard who wrote an extraordinary novel (Mildred Murdoch), blasphemous tracts and masses of rather poor poetry. After teaching all over the world, Stewart became a full-time author in 1989. He has written some 270 books, fiction and non-fiction for both children and adults. He also writes plays, lyrics and other bits and pieces, and teaches writing in French and British universities. Stewart lives near Canterbury with his wife, four occasional children and Chess the ageing sheepdog. Each morning he commutes ten metres to work in a large hut in the garden.
