About the Author

Stanley Wilson lives with his wife and daughter and three Pugs, dividing time between Mill Creek and Plain, Washington. He is the author of three books: Stubblefield (Llumina Press, 2004), Qi Gong for Beginners: Eight Easy Movements for Vibrant Health (Rudra Press, 1997), and Rising Above Shame: Healing Family Wounds to Self-Esteem (Launch Press, 1991, second printing 2001).

Stubblefield, his first work of fiction, has been called "a smart psychological thriller" (Brenda Peterson), as well as "a finely wrought tale of love and treachery . . . haunting and original" (Sam Horn). The highly acclaimed Qi Gong for Beginners was hailed by Larry Dossey as "elegantly written, a joy to read, and highly recommended." Bernie Siegel called the book "a fine resource for those interested in participating in their own health and well-being." In his foreword to Rising Above Shame, the venerable John Bradshaw stated, "Stanley Wilson does an incredible job . . . he goes beyond my own work on shame in several ways." Jane Middelton-Moz stated, "As Dr. Wilson educates he touches the heart," and Lorie Dwinell added, "a must-read for those shamed as children."

Born in 1944 and raised in Seattle, Washington, Wilson graduated from Whitman College with a degree in Psychology. After attending two years of graduate school, he set aside his studies and worked as a road manager and sound engineer for several successful rock 'n' roll groups. From 1970 until 1975, he toured the United States and Europe with some of the biggest names in the music industry. It was during this time he honed his chess game and competed in tournaments throughout Southern California. Returning to graduate school, he earned a Masters Degree in Psychology at California State University at Los Angeles and a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at California School of Professional Psychology in Los Angeles.

In 1996, Dr. Wilson downscaled his private practice in clinical psychology and founded a nonprofit organization, Protect-A-Child-Today! (PACT). Based on a prevention model, PACT is dedicated to improving quality of parenting and protecting children from victimization.

Books in the pipeline include a recently completed children's novel entitled Timothy's Inner Helpers. Wilson is now at work on his fifth book, a serial-killer thriller set in the Pacific Northwest with a working title of Naked Ladies.
