Stanalei's first writing award came from her high school creative writing class.
The award: A coupon redeemable for a future writing assignment.
The contest: The wildest excuse ever for not turning in a homework assignment.
Her story: UFO abduction.

Many of her stories fall into the romantic suspense genre and are filled with action-adventure woven through dangerous circumstances. But she also likes to dabble on the edge of sci-fi. She's even been fortunate to have her stories final in a few contests.

Stanalei's love of writing romance stems from reading favorites such as Grimm's Fairy Tales, Barbara Cartland, and Alistair MacLean. She has over twenty years in the martial arts and holds the rank of Sandan, a third degree black belt, in Aikido. After a taste of life on both U.S. coasts, she now reside near the beautiful Wasatch Mountains with her hero, who just happens to be her best friend and husband. Together, they enjoy backcountry dirt trails on a RZR, visiting our National Parks, or exploring museums and ghost towns.

Stanalei is a member of the Romance Writers of America, the Utah Romance Writers Chapter, and the Kiss of Death Chapter of Romance Writers.
