Stuart Hill (born 1958[1]) is a British author. He was born in Leicester, where he still lives.[2] He has written four books in The Icemark Chronicles: The Cry of the Icemark, Blade of Fire, Last Battle of the Icemark and Prince Of The Icemark.[3] He studied English, Classics and Ancient History at Newcastle University.[4]


Hill left school at the age of 16 without any formal qualifications. He worked at a car factory for 6 years before going back to college to get his teaching degree.[5] After teaching English in Greece for several years, he then worked as a book seller in Leicester from 1994 - 2004.[6] Stuart then began writing the Icemark series and when his book was accepted for publication by Chicken House, he dedicated his time to writing the rest of the series. In 2005, The Cry of the Icemark, the first book in the series, was published and copyrighted.[7]

On 25 July 2011, Stuart released a new book on Kindle. Tales From Moonshiny Hall, a collection of ghost stories, was published under the name S. R. Hill.

Stuart has released a couple of non-fiction books in the 'I Was There!' series called 'Richard III's Court' and 'Viking Invasion'.[8]

Stuart has written a book called "Sorceress" about post-Roman Britain and the struggle between the indigenous Celts and the invading Germanic tribes (Anglo-Saxons). It will be an Arthurian tale with a twist. Merlin and Arthur will not be portrayed as the good guys but as baddies. The book is currently in limbo regarding whether it will ever be released. He is also working on a self-publishing project called "Black Dog". His books have been translated into 18 languages.[9]
