About this author


Blog: http://www.exciting-stories.co.uk/monty

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

Austin (Children's Books)
4 chapters   —   updated Sep 24, 2012 12:15PM
Description: Often funny but a bit of a tear-jerker in places! Austin is a wreck! He's overgrown with weeds and brambles and lives at the back of Farmer Oats' old barn behind the rickety stone wall. Vole, Hedgehog and the Blackbird family shelter inside him and when the old stone wall collapses and Austin is sent by the greedy farmer to Butcher's scrapyard, the animals are all made homeless and put in terrible danger of being eaten alive by Marmaduke the evil farmyard tomcat. If this wasn't bad enough, when Austin is towed away to be thrown into the Giant Steam Crusher, the baby Blackbird Twins are trapped inside him! Will the farmyard animals find the man in the village who does up old cars to rescue Austin before Marmaduke makes a meal of them? Will Austin and the Blackbird babies be squished inside the crusher's greedy jaws? The rollercoaster twists and turns and humour of this thrilling adventure story make 'Austin' a non-stop, page turner for both kids age 7 to10 (and grown-ups alike)!
Austin and the Secret of Karnak House (Children's Books)
4 chapters   —   updated Sep 24, 2012 11:54AM
Description: This book is the sequel to the first of The Austin Chronicles, "Austin". Intended for readers over nine to adult, this is a classic adventure story set both in the present day and the Second World War. The lavish plot deals with spies, secret-codes, and Austin's career in the British Secret Service as part of a mysterious expedition to be the first nation to find the lost continent of Atlantis and an awesome mystic force known only to the ancient Atlanteans that can both heal and destroy. Though set largely in the present day, the story also glimpses a time where computer development was in its infancy, where mechanical computers look set to prevail, and where the horrific consequences of racial persecution are made real to young readers. Like the first book in the Austin Chronicles, "Austin and the Secret of Karnak House" is an anthropomorphic tale with animal characters whose humorous antics and conversation provide light-hearted contrast to some of the darker human activities in this book.
