More About the Author

Stuart, born in Buckinghamshire in 1965 where his first address was a Caravan. Since then life has just got more interesting. He's worked for the BBC, Post Office, & a host of other employers as a meat packer, a builder of vehicular radiators, a postman, a department manager, assistant general manager, a director and even a managing director. He is currently working as a surveyor for a large multi national company.

He has 3 children in the UK, & a wonderful girlfriend who works in Oman, with another 5. His claims to fame are trying climb a volcano in the Philippines while it was erupting (Mount Mayon in August 2001) & failing to get all the way though the worlds longest underground navigable river in Palawan, ask him why over a beer sometime...

He has more interests than any sane man should have, which include writing, reading, oil painting, walking, guitar, singing, cooking, amateur radio, hunting and rocketry. Plus other minor hobbies too numerous to mention.

His first book took 2 years to write & is on the short side. His second book, a work of fiction was better, his third was about cats and will be published as an expanded edition next year in dead tree format with many photos and additional stories. The fourth book was written after a beer fueled afternoon eating badly cooked BBQ chicken (and took 12 hours to write and publish!), his fifth was about Zombies, but with a twist.

He is writing several more, but is taking his time over these as he feels his earlier works were written to quickly and contain to many errors. He is planning to rewrite all of his early books when he has completed his current projects.

Stuart is very much an amateur writer who writes for his own pleasure. His book prices are set with this in mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless. 23 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The ubiquitous Raisey-Skeats books probably don't need reviewing - we've all read them and we've all read them to our children, and we all love them to bits, but of course, this review would not be complete without paying homage to one of the world's favourite authors for children and adults alike.
There is inherent magic in My Mum's Ginger Cat. The storyline embodies naughtiness and excitement beyond anyone's wildest imagination, and to this day could send any protective parent into a tailspin, not to mention an adventuresome child.
Of course, the success of this book is more than just the delightful naughtiness. The skilful word play and its delicious rhythm make it a delight to both read and read aloud. The invention, the pace, the wordage - all are timeless and will never be topped.
With powerful simplicity, clarity, and drama, Raisey-Skeats reduces any concept on the dynamics of the feline psyche to an easily understood gesture. Mr. Raisey-Skeats poetry and choice of words is equally impressive and serves as a splendid counterpart to his bold symbolism. In all, his writing style is quick and fluid, making My Mum's Ginger Cat impossible to put down. While this novel isn't overly lengthy, and one can read it in five sittings or less, it is not until after multiple readings that the genius of this modern day master becomes apparent.
And what a treat to be able to revisit our childhood through these books, and see our children similarly entranced, all at the same time by these feline adventures.
My Mum's Ginger cat - forget Harry Potter - every home library for adults and kids should have this.

4.0 out of 5 stars I laughed out loud, often 6 Mar 2012
By Jrzin - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The escapades of these cats (and the occasional dog) remind me of clips from Funniest Home Videos with the added benefit of knowing at least a little about the characters involved. There were slower parts also, including maybe a little too much background detail of how each cat came to live there.

Even though the book could use a good proofreading, I really enjoyed it. Some people are just good story tellers. And when you have such interesting cats to start with, it makes for a fun read. I would have loved to have seen that cat trying to see over the washing machine!
4.0 out of 5 stars Delightful cat tales! 29 Feb 2012

Any cat lover will enjoy reading this book about the antics of this family's felines. I especially enjoyed reading about King Arthur Pendragon's ability to spit furballs! I've been the keeper of a lot of cats, but never had one who could do that. Thanks to the author for adding more delightful tales of the cat world!
