J.V. Stanley’s dream of breaking into print happened when she entered a poetry contest nearly twenty years ago where she earned recognition with an Honorable Mention. Since then, her passion for writing became the driving force of subsequent recognition as she went on to win Presidential Awards for Literary Excellence and five honorable mentions. During subsequent years, she furthered the development of her writing by working with ESL writers for an online content writing firm in Pakistan. She has published over forty articles and poems, tutored nearly 30 individuals in English and creative writing, completed her first novel ‘Faces in Still Waters’ with an expected publication date of sometime in July 2013. She has maintained a journal since 1989, which sparked her creative interest in writing. This turned her thoughts into prose, her prose into poetry, and later morphed into threads of stories. She has used her life experiences as a foundation for her moral and ethical standpoints which are imbued within the poem "After a While".
She is the founder and CEO of Writerz Block editing service and is the Development and Marketing Director for Miracle E-zine. She spends her off-time encouraging her children to think creatively and continues her adventures in writing on a daily basis. She is also completing the last year of her BA in English and Communications through the University of Phoenix. She thanks the millions of coffee beans who willingly sacrificed their existence for all of her creative and domestic endeavors.
