Born in the Isle of Man of Irish/Welsh parentage, Noel Stuart nursed no other ambition than to work with animals. His lifelong passion and his interest in complimentary medicine combined to culminate in his eventual choice of career as a veterinary surgeon. His work as a vet and second career as a writer is a rich tapestry of down to earth practice alongside a sense of healing power beyond science. This is balanced by a great sense of humour running a sparkling thread through all that he writes. He can claim distinction as being one of the earlier vets to treat fish and has the dubious honour of force feeding “Daisy” an eight foot alligator. He has enjoyed being a ‘lollipop man’, school governor and Rotarian as well as being a choir member. The first two books “It’s a Dog’s Life’ and ‘Man and Beast’, using local marketing have both had reprints. In his third book he is able to look back over his life from his origins in the Isle of Man, education in Ulster, despite the U-boat menace until his graduation as a vet in Dublin and meeting the love of his life. Together with Margaret, their adventures in practice take them to Loughborough, the Isle of Man and across Canada until they finally end up in Devon and Cornwall. During their life in Cornwall Noel becomes involved in fish diseases, homoeopathy and dowsing to complement general practice.
