Meet the Author

William Robert Stanek was born in Burlington Wisconsin where he attended Public Schools including Janes School Elementary in Racine Wisconsin. He is the second youngest of five children. After a career in the military, he settled in Washington State, having been captivated by the rugged beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

In 1985 he enlisted in the US Air Force and entered a 2-year training program in Intelligence and Linguistics at the Defense Language Institute. After graduation he served in various field operations duties in Asia and Europe. In 1990 he won an appointment to Air Combat School and shortly after graduation served in the Persian Gulf War as a combat crewmember on an electronic warfare aircraft. During his two tours in the Persian Gulf War, William flew numerous combat and combat support missions, logging over two hundred combat flight hours. His distinguished accomplishments during the war earned him nine medals, including the United States of America's highest flying honor, the Air Force Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal, the Air Force Commendation Medal, and the Humanitarian Service Medal. He earned 29 decorations in his 11-year military career.

In 1994 William earned his bachelor's degree magna cum laude from Hawaii Pacific University. In 1995 he earned his master's degree with distinction from Hawaii Pacific University. In 1996 he separated from the military, having spent 11 years in the United States Air Force. His last station while in the Air Force was at the 324th Intelligence Squadron, Wheeler Army Airfield, Hawaii.

Born into a family of readers, William was always reading and creating stories. Even before he started school, he read classics like Treasure Island, The Swiss Family Robinson, Kidnapped, Robinson Crusoe, and The Three Musketeers. Later in his childhood, he started reading Jules Verne, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Ray Bradbury, Herman Melville, Jack London, Charles Dickens, and Edgar Allan Poe. Of that he says, "Edgar Allan Poe can be pretty bleak and dark, especially when you're ten years old. But I remember being fascinated with his stories. To this day, I can still remember parts of The Raven, The Tell Tale Heart, and The Murders in the Rue Morgue."

William completed his first novel in 1986 when he was stationed in Japan but it wasn't until nearly a decade later that his first book was published. Since then, he has written and had published over 75 books.
