Since beginning a professional writing career, Stanley Cutler has written six novels, two screenplays, dozens of newspaper columns, and a narrative non-fiction work on the rhetoric of political conventions. Away from his desk, he teaches Cyber Age Political Communication in Temple U’s OLLI program. He volunteers as a Friend of the Library, doing
his best to preserve Enlightenment values from the perils of digitized communication.
His career began teaching Social Studies at inner-city Philadelphia high schools. After writing a thesis on Malcolm X’s rhetoric, he joined Penn State’s Speech and Communications faculty. He quit six years later, having endured 1,800 sophomore speeches.
Leaving academe in the rear-view mirror, he travelled on the hippy highway with his wife and daughter to the Guatemalan border and back. When they returned to Philly, Stan again taught high school history, then spent a year as a demonstration teacher in Oslo, Norway. Returning to Philly, he went to night school to learn computer programming, leading to a career as an IT development specialist. Over twenty years, working for top-tier consulting firms, he was involved with the design and implementation of business systems for Fortune Fifty companies and ground systems for NOAA satellites.
He hopes you enjoy his suspenseful tales of murder, fraud and espionage featuring casts of unforgettable characters.
