Stuart Woods was born in Manchester, Georgia on January 9, 1938. He received a BA in sociology from the University of Georgia in 1959. He worked in the advertising business and eventually wrote two non-fiction books: Blue Water, Green Skipper and A Romantic's Guide to the Country Inns of Britain and Ireland. His first novel, Chiefs, was published in March 1981. It won an Edgar Award and was made into a TV miniseries starring Charlton Heston.
His other works include the Stone Barrington series, the Holly Barker series, the Will Lee series, the Ed Eagle series, and the Rick Barron series. He won France's Prix de Literature Policiere for Imperfect Strangers. Currently, two of his novels, Under the Lake and White Cargo are under development as feature films.
Now with a new afterword that looks back at how one transatlantic race changed his life, Woods takes readers on a spectacular journey not just of traveling across the world, but
of being tried in fire, learning by accepting challenges, appreciating the beauty of the open water, and living to tell about it.
