About the Author

Jack R. Stanley is a native Texan born two blocks inside Texas and raised six blocks inside Arkansas in Texarkana, Arkansas/Texas. He received his B.F.A. from Texas Christian University in Ft. Worth in Radio-TV-Film. As an officer in the U.S. Army serving in Vietnam as a TV-Film Director, he was awarded the Bronze Star. He says when you’re in a firefight and you have a camera when everybody else on both side have guns, you get to change your pants a lot.

After his military service he earned both his M.A. and his Ph.D. at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor in Radio-TV-Film. He also received two of Michigan¹s most prestigious creative writing awards, The Hopwood Award, one for a one-act play and the second for a novel.

Stanley’s first academic position was TV Area Head at The University of Texas at Austin’s Department of Radio-TV-Film. He later moved to deep south Texas and the Lower Rio Grande Valley for a challenging position with The University of Texas-Pan American. Here he taught Theatre-TV-Film for 30 years in the Department of Communication serving as Department Chair at U.T.P.A. for 11 years. He did take one year out to work for The University of Alaska Anchorage as a visiting professor. Back in Texas, Stanley directed for stage at The University Theatre, produced and directed fifteen student staffed, cast, and crewed feature films, writing most of the original screenplays. A very few of his credits are available on IMDB.com. Among the courses Stanley taught were Script Writing for Stage and Screen, Beginning TV/Film Production, Advanced TV/Film Production, Basic Video/Film Editing, Advanced Video/Film Editing, as well as Directing I and II for Stage and Screen. He also co-wrote with Dr. Marian Monta, the textbook Directing for Stage and Screen.

Stanley, still happily married to his high school sweetheart, now lives in the cool of Wisconsin where he writes his fiction and runs his blogs, www.TheFictionWritersNotebook.com and www.jackrstanley.com. His e-mail address is
