Ms Stuartís first book, Showgirls, was published in 1996 and was adapted into a two-part documentary for the Discovery Channel in 1998 and has since inspired a theatrical show, a contemporary dance piece and a number of burlesque performances. Her second book, The Rose of Martinique: A Biography of Napoleonís Josephine, was published in 2003. The Rose of Martinique won the Enid McLeod Literary Prize in 2004. Her third book Sugar in the Blood: One Familyís Story of Slavery and Empire was published in 2012. It was shortlisted for the BOCAS Literary Prize and the Spears Book Award and was the Boston Globeís non-fiction pick of 2013. She has been published in numerous anthologies and her articles have been published in a range of newspapers and magazines.
