H. R. Stanley


H.R. Stanley is my chosen pen name in honour of Hilda my beloved Nan and Stanley my Grandfather who I never had the pleasure of knowing. Rayner is the family name.

I mainly write short stories but am in the process of writing a short novel.

I live in Plymouth with a cat who likes to cause as much mischief as he can when awake.

As well as writing I can be found designing and making soft-toys and other craft activities.
