Stuart Woods was born in the small southern town of Manchester, Georgia and attended the local public schools, then graduated from the University of Georgia, with a BA in sociology.

In the autumn of 1960, he moved to New York, in search of a writing job. The magazines and newspapers weren’t hiring, so he got a job in a training program at an advertising agency.

At the end of the '60s, he moved to London and worked there for three years in various advertising agencies. In early 1973, he decided that the time had come for him to write the novel he had been thinking about since the age of ten. He moved to Ireland, where some friends found him a small flat in the stableyard of a castle in south County Galway, and he supported himself by working two days a week for a Dublin ad agency, while he worked on the novel. Then, about a hundred pages into the book, he discovered sailing, and “...everything went to hell. All I did was sail.”

After a couple of years of this his grandfather died, leaving him, “...just enough money to get into debt for a boat,” and he decided to compete in the 1976 Observer Singlehanded Transatlantic Race (OSTAR).

His book "Chiefs" established Woods as a novelist. The book won the Edgar Allan Poe prize from the Mystery Writers of America, and he was later nominated again for Palindrome. More recently he was awarded France’s Prix de Literature Policiere, for "Imperfect Strangers." He has since been prolific, having published his 50th novel, "Severe Clear" in September 2012.

After publishing 15 novels before appearing on the New York Times bestseller list, he has since had 39 straight bestsellers on the the Times hardcover list.

He is a licensed, instrument-rated private pilot, with 3,400 hours total time, and he currently flies a Cessna Citation Mustang jet and in September 2013 will move up to the new Citation M-2, and his wife, Jeanmarie, who has recently earned her private pilot, instrument and multi-engine ratings, will train for the copilot’s seat in the new jet. Stuart sails on other peoples’ boats, owns a Hinckley T38 power boat and is a partner in a 85-foot 1935 Trumpy motor yacht, Enticer, and on the cover of Loitering With Intent. The yacht has been recently restored to like-new condition.

Stuart Woods is no longer a born-again bachelor, having married the former Jeanmarie Cooper of Key West in January 2013, and they live with a Labrador retriever named Fred in Key West, Florida, on Mount Desert Island, in Maine, and, occasionally, in a New York City pied a terre. (Of a warm nature, he says he’s always looking for 70 degrees Fahrenheit).
