About William L. Stuart
William Stuart is a ten-year veteran of the US Navy Submarine Force, works in the animal health field, and is the proud father of his daughter Laura and grandfather of two wonderful grandchildren, Aidan and Maggie. All three inspired characters in The Gemstone Chronicles series. When he isn’t working, he enjoys rock-hunting, gold prospecting, learning, reading, and dabbling in woodworking. He lives in the Greater Atlanta area with Lana, his lovely and adorable wife of over 30 years (and the inspiration for Nana in the books).
