Stuart Woods: Prolific Best-Selling Thriller Author

From a New York Times obit by Sam Roberts headlined “Stuart Woods, Prolific Best-Selling Thriller Author, Dies at 84”:

Stuart Woods, a prolific, prizewinning mystery writer who churned out multiple best sellers during what his memoir duly described as “an extravagant life,” died in Washington, Conn.

Mr. Woods, who was also a swashbuckling licensed private jet plane pilot and trans-Atlantic sailor with homes in New York, Maine and Florida, tacked into his career as a novelist somewhat haphazardly.
