Christopher P. Stanley

Christopher P. Stanley grew up in Grove City, OH and had a childhood that centered around imagination, play, and exploring the outdoors (mixed in with a healthy amount of Nintendo).  A large part of his, perhaps overactive, imagination is owed to books – Where the Wild Things Are,  Vinegar Pancakes and Vanishing Cream and "every single Dr. Seuss book" make up just a small sampling of the children's books that filled him with wonder - and continue to do so to this very day! 

Christopher graduated from Ohio Dominican University with a degree in Education, and has been an educator for the past 10 years in both the K-12 and Higher Education settings.  He currently lives in Upper Arlington, OH with his wife, Morgan, and their four children - Rylee, Olivia, Lylah, and Samuel - who remind him every day of the magic that is childhood.

Christopher is an award-winning author and a co-founder of Jump Splash Books, and he aims to highlight imagination and celebrate the joys of childhood through his stories.
