At the age of seven, I fell in love with the written word. Since that fateful day, I've dreamt of writing my own novels. In April 2014, twenty-five years later, that dream finally came true.

Writing is, and always has been, my passion. I revel in creating characters, unique worlds, realistic environments, and situations and stories that hook the reader. Reading stories of this kind inspires me so returning the favour has always been important to me, as a writer and a fan of literature.

I'm also a co-director at Dark Chapter Press, an English-based horror publisher, so pop over to my website for more information, including a fan club, the latest submission calls and new releases.

Whether it's one sentence or 4000 words (I try for 2000 a day minimum, I can be quite prolific) it keeps your mind in the zone. I tried it and it works.

This sage advice was given to me by the one and only, Lee Child. I won a writing competition and the prize was meeting him for drinks. This was one of the most insightful hours of my life.

This was a phenomenal eye-opener and gave me the confidence to follow my dream. Thank you, Lee, wherever you are. (less)

Convention Schedule 2017

Hello, all.

It’s been a busy few weeks (nothing new there) but I’ve decided to finally reveal my upcoming UK convention schedule for the remainder of 2017.

I wanted to ensure that certain dates were confirmed before doing this, and now I have that confirmation, I am happy to share the news with you. The convention scene for 2017 has been prolific so far, and that will continue throughout the year.

“You can’t suspend me…I quit. I’ve seen a new side to this company in the past few months. I want nothing to do with it. Consider this as me giving in my notice. Now get away from my computer so I can finish my fucking job.” - Vincent”
Stuart Keane, The Customer Is Always...

“I want to tell you a story."
- Mr Pierce”
Stuart Keane, The Customer Is Always...

“I can't imagine anything better than reading a book; four hundred pages that immerse you in a complex imaginary world for multiple hours, a world that takes you away from the mundane routine of existence. Nothing else exists like it. Not films or video games. Nothing. It’s a true wonderment to the human mind, and the creative arts." Greg”
Stuart Keane, 89
