What?: A spotlight on new Scottish debut authors

Scottish author Martin Stewart has been writing for a long time, having made his first book using Post-It notes when aged eight.

He went on to complete a B.A. in English as well as a master’s degree in Literary Studies, and taught Creative Writing at the University of Strathclyde and English at Kyle Academy in Ayr. In his spare time, he enjoys buying books to feed to his to-be-read pile and escaping Glasgow’s urban glory by walking on the beaches of Scotland’s west coast. He writes stories where reality has taken a sidestep into the shadows, and feels that the shadows are where all the interesting things happen.

Martin’s debut YA novel, RIVERKEEP, is forthcoming from Penguin Random House UK and Viking Children’s Books (USA) in 2016.
