Robert Stanek has been a writer in his heart since he was old enough to hold a pencil and a professional writer for 20 years (writing as William Stanek and Robert Stanek). Some say that a person's experiences define them. Well, that goes doubly-so for writers. As a writer, Robert Stanek draws on a deep well of experiences from his youth, his travels in the military, and his life as a family man. He writes in multiple genres and many of his readers follow him across those genres. Brian Jacques told him once to keep writing, just keep writing. He loved that advice, and he's lived it.
