Richard Standring retired from a career in advertising in 1992. A year later he quit a 30-year flying adventure. Some of those adventures surface in his numerous short stories. He has been actively writing novels, short stories, essays, and poems over the past 25 years. "When you've traveled extensively, and met a lot of interesting people, mix that with some imagination, and you have a cornucopia of story ideas. That's what I've become, a storyteller...in a world full of stories."
Suzette Martinez Standring (no relation) a syndicated columnist for GateHouse writes: "Richard Standring is a compelling storyteller. His characters are the disenfranchised and the walking wounded, but they are alive with intelligence and integrity. I found myself turning page after page, eager to know what happened next. The simplicity of his storytelling enhances the journey into the lives of people we often overlook. It's a refreshment that educates."
Richard lives in Pembroke, MA and spends the winters in Sebastian, FL. Readers can reach him at: [email protected].
