Stuart Clark was born in England in the sleepy little town of Ashford, Middlesex. To those not intimate with British geography, that can more simply be described as Greater London.

Science, particularly Biology, always interested Stuart and after school, he went on to Bristol University where he graduated with a BSc in Microbiology.

He worked for two years as a technical author for a large scientific publishing company before deciding that he really wanted to go back to University and do a Masters degree in Science Communication, which he completed at Imperial College, London.

After years of intermittent study and work, Stuart decided to take a sabbatical and spent almost two years experiencing the sights and sounds of Australasia and South-East Asia. He spent a year of that time living and working in Sydney, Australia.

When hes not working or writing, Stuart spends his time scuba diving and attempting to play golf.

Stuart emigrated to the United States in 2005 and now lives with his wife and daughter in New Jersey.
