Stanley in his own words

I'll write about the background to and genesis of Stanley some time soon but, since he's now public (in e-form at least), I'm giving him this guest spot to speak for himself. This is the trailer for the first story in which he appears - Stanley Moves In.

He had full editorial control over script and images.

Having him sit for the portraits must have been very trying for Melanie Chadwick, the illustrator, but she has plenty of patience.


  1. yes...the longer he sat the grumpier he got so really he probably enjoyed the experience.

  2. Not that he'd ever admit it of course, Mel.

  3. I'm fascinated by this little fairy. Certainly he's not the 'norm', lol. How often will there be a Stanley book?

    Happy last shopping day - whoever made that designation? - and congrats on the release.

  4. Thanks, Martie, and lots of good wishes to you for however you'll be spending the season. There are 7 stories written so far. If he turns out to be even slightly popular, there'll be more.

  5. I really like the irony of a grumpy fairy.
