ABOUT THE AUTHOR
John Stanley lives in Durham, NC. At night, when the moon is clear and full in the Carolina sky, you might catch him staring upwards, wondering what it would be like to stand on the lunar surface and look up at a small, blue earth, swirled with white clouds. He and his wife, both lawyers, hope their twin boys will grow up to be explorers or scientists or historians or teachers, but will still love them if they become lawyers too.
