Magic is just science we don’t understand.
Sometimes, we forget every mysterious thing was considered magic before we learned the truth. These natural properties of the earth, the universe, time and space continue to fascinate us, too. And the quest into the greatest mystery of all, the shared human condition, is one we’re compelled to continue. Because we know it’s where we’ll one day learn the truth of our own existence.
JD Stanley is a fantasy and speculative fiction writer with a rabid interest in the magic of science and a preternatural curiosity about human interaction. The intersection of positive and negative energy, light and dark, collides in villains you love to hate and anti-heroes who drag their heels about doing the right thing.
A self-admitted history, science and mythology junkie, JD’s professional background includes radio broadcasting, communication, commercial copy-writing and editing. A freelance writer and real live modern Druid in the day-to-day, JD plays-out the biggest questions against history, myth and scientific speculation where the quest into those unseen forces that drive the human condition is ventured with a magic wand in one hand and multiverse theory in the other.
JD is also co-executive producer/screenwriter, webmaster and “corporate boring stuff guy” for the independent film promotion and production company, Bony Fiddle. JD’s dark fantasy novel, Blood Runner, is a Canada Book Awards Winner and a 2017 Book Excellence Award Finalist for Fantasy.
