American author Stuart Woods was most known for his first book Chiefs and his series of books with the Stone Barrington character.

Stone Barrington author Stuart Woods passed away at age 84.

More than 90 novels by the late Stuart Woods, many of which starred the lawyer-investigator Stone Barrington, were written. He was 84.

According to his spokeswoman Katie Grinch, Woods passed away peacefully on Friday, July 22, at his home in Litchfield County, Connecticut.

After earning his degree from his native state’s University of Georgia, Woods relocated to New York in 1960 to pursue a career in journalism. Instead, he chose to pursue a career in advertising. He eventually settled in London before moving to Galway, Ireland, where he learned to sail.

In 1976, he competed in the Observer Single-handed Trans-Atlantic Race, which had its starting point in Plymouth, England, and its finish in Newport, Rhode Island. His first book, “Blue Water, Green Skipper,” was a non-fiction account of that adventure.

W.W. Norton & Company agreed to publish Woods’ debut novel after acquiring the American rights to the book.

That book, “Chiefs,” published in 1981, won literary awards and was adapted into a CBS miniseries starring Charlton Heston, Danny Glover, Billy Dee Williams, and John Goodman. It was about three generations of lawmen and the murder of a teenager in a small southern town.
