Stan-The Man- was born on the longest day of the year. He was pleased to be born in the summer with two equal astrological signs. Writing has been a life long pleasure and pursuit. He wrote and published his first "book" when he was twelve. Family has always been important to him. It has been a source of strength and inspiration in his writing. He travelled to California from Cleveland, Ohio by train. He grew up in Westchester and has lived in the "Valley" for several decades. A graduate of Loyola, a former Marine, a father,a survivor of many tragedies, and grandfather at a young age, has helped him to write from the heart and soul with great understanding of the human condition, its joys and its follies.
