Stanley’s childhood dreams were inspired by the classic films of horror and science fiction. While other boys developed their love of team sports, he drew cartoon books about giant monsters. He evolved to more serious writing at the age of ten, inspired by his literary idols, Jules Verne and H. G. Wells. In his teenage years, Stanley attempted a few magazine submissions, but without success. He spent the following decades earning an honest living, but his imagination continued to create stories. After taking an early retirement from a job in the automobile industry, he once more offered his tales for publication, this time finding acceptance. His work appears in the anthologies “Daylight Dims 2”, “Fossil Lake 2”, “My Favorite Apocalypse”, and many others. Stanley lives on a country road in upstate New York.
