Author Biography

I am exciting that you are interested in Britfield & the Lost Crown. Part of a seven book series, Britfield was conceived as an idea over 10 years ago while sitting in a seminar in New England. It started as a sketch I did of a hot air balloon with a young boy and girl trapped inside. From this simple drawing sprang the entire concept and story for Britfield. I also liked the idea of adventure, exploration and freedom—seeing an extraordinary country for the first time: moving from place to place, enjoying spectacular scenery and exciting events, learning new things, meeting people, making friends and having hope for a better future. I like that not everything is what it seems.
Born in Newport Beach, California, C. R. Stewart is a prolific writer with twenty years of experience writing fiction, nonfiction, and movie screenplays. In addition, he is a highly respected producer, creativity specialist, and international consultant, as well as a prominent speaker.

The stories of kings and kingdoms, heirs to thrones and usurpers are as old as history itself, particularly British history. What if a British royal family aggressively took hold of the throne, systematically eliminating the very existence of the previous family? Sounds like the stuff of legends and ancient history, right? But what if this was taking place today and the conspiracy led to the very doorstep of Windsor Castle? In Britfield and the Lost Crown by C. R. Stewart, join Tom and his friend, Sarah, as they attempt to escape a brutal orphanage in northern England. Let your heart race with theirs as their journey becomes a desperate bid for their own lives, for their friends, and for the future of the British crown!

Britfield and the Lost Crown by C. R. Stewart is a perfect mixture of fast-paced excitement, heart-stopping surprises, fascinating history, and endearing characters. I loved all the historical references scattered along the way; they added to the realism of the story and had me stopping and researching a few things myself. Tom and Sarah’s devotion to each other provides an excellent backdrop to the many mishaps and dangers in which they find themselves. I could see this book being used in a classroom setting both as a literature piece and as a geographical and historical resource. What an opportunity to use a thrilling story to get children excited about these subjects! Stewart’s clever narrative draws you in and doesn’t let you go till the end!
