Over a dozen magazines have published Stanley’s short stories and he is a member of the North Carolina Writers' Network. Stanley grew up on a dairy farm in Spotsylvania, VA and lived most of his life in the Fredericksburg, VA area. He recently moved to New Bern, NC where he continues to write. Stanley has become an expert at writing unpublishable books. However, he messed up and completed a publishable novel of speculative fiction (science fiction, literary, urban fantasy, satire mix) where a lonely, unemployed chemist has too much time on his hands. Stanley is currently searching for representation and may soon rely on his inexperience at self publishing.
