Stuart Johnstone's headshot

Stuart Johnstone is the author of the Don Colyear crime series. As well as crime fiction, Stuart also likes to write in other genres, including dystopian and horror. His big break came when he found himself published alongside one of his literary heroes, Stephen King.

He lives in Edinburgh where he runs a crazy little shop for dogs, which keeps him busy when he’s not writing. He boasts the most bizarre CV, including ten years as a police officer. This comes in quite handy with the crime fiction.

Stuart has completed a BA and MA in Creative Writing.
