Stephen R. Marriott is a British author whose creative spirit is inspired by travel and walking the roads less travelled. His debut book, CANDYFLOSS GUITAR, has climbed the Amazon Best Sellers list and has been ranked #1 in several categories.
Born in Portishead, Somerset, Stephen soon developed a voracious appetite for reading. Although it wasn’t until later in life he discovered his vocation for writing. After studying Economics he worked as an investment analyst in London. His investment career was a fascinating period of his life but ultimately it didn’t satisfy his curiosity about the world and one day he found himself walking out of the office. Adventures eventually brought him to the foothills of the Pyrenees, about to walk across Spain on the historical Camino de Santiago. It was on this pilgrimage that Stephen discovered he’d made the best decision of his life, ‘breaking out of the bank’.
Within months he’d written CANDYFLOSS GUITAR, a coming-of-age tale set against the inspiring backdrop of the Camino de Santiago. Combining life lessons and adventure, Candyfloss Guitar, is Book One of The Reluctant Pilgrim series. Book Two, Santiago's Guitar, is due for release by the end of 2018.
MARRIOTT’S passion for people, place and writing are indelibly intertwined. When he’s not wandering the globe he normally lays his hat in London.
