More About the Author
His special interests cover a broad spectrum of arts, sciences and philosophy. At times he seeks inspiration in the Peruvian Andes, or solitude under sail. His books (articles, short stories, poetry) attest to his particular passion for the scope and the development of Human Potential. He authored more than thirty books, eighteen of them novels.
His non-fiction explores Ancient Myths, Biblical Symbolism, Immortality and the mystery of Visualization. Three volumes of Essays (Beyond Religion) investigate the Nature of Being. Generally, if you suspect you are more than flesh and bones, read Stan Law. If you want to be sure, read Stanislaw Kapuscinski.

Stan I.S. Law
Dr. Peter Thornton is a final-year resident at Montreal General Hospital in Canada. He is a cynical man and a bit of a rake when it comes to women. His favorite assignations are with compliant nurses in a darkened linen closet where he takes what he wants with the same robotic efficiency he demonstrates on his morning rounds. Dr. Peter has a photographic memory when it comes to scientific facts and uses this gift to provide the best possible care to his patients. His immediate boss the aging, yet active, Resident Chief Dr. Brent is impressed by the young resident's talents and the fact that his patients appear to heal extraordinarily well and exit the hospital quicker than the norm. After the young doctor completes his final exams Dr. Brent recommends him for Membership in the prestigious Royal College of Physicians.
Dr. Thornton's living arrangements are somewhat unorthodox as well. After his brother died he moved in with his sister-in-law Ruth and her two young children. To further complicate the situation a butler appears on scene, recommended by the dead brother, and becomes a dominant figure in the household. Very quickly, the enigmatic Winston Smith makes himself irreplaceable to the whole family. Then, Peter meets the beautiful and exotic Catherine Mondellay, who has a Ph.D. in nuclear physics and is the daughter of a billionaire. He falls madly in love.
But everything is about to change.
Mr. Law, the author, has a firm grasp on the disciplines of both physics and metaphysics as his character Peter Thornton delves into his psyche to find out the reasons for the radical change in his behavior. The reader is led through the mind of the good doctor as he contemplates his situation.Read more ›
Luckily for him an exotic daughter of a billionaire is there to hold his hand. If it weren't for Cathy, the sinuous and beautiful maiden who just happens to have a Ph.D. in nuclear physics, Peter would have probably remained a rake determined to corner the most beautiful nurses into the lined cupboard.
It is a wonderful page-turner.
Dr. Peter Thornton is a confident well educated man who believes his photographic memory for scientific fact gives him a cutting edge in his profession. Peter once wanted to be a priest but backed out at the last minute. He was devout even keeping his virginity up until the age of 24 when a nurse showed him what he had been missing. Since then Peter has known many nurses in numerous linen closets around the hospital. He has carried guilt over leaving the seminary and has donated large sums of money to the church for retribution. When Peter’s brother passed away he went against his usual judgment and agreed to move in with his sister in law Ruth, her butler and her children to be a role model to his brother’s adopted children.
Dr. Peter Thornton is a complex character with an interesting personality that is explored in depth once he realizes that he has a gift for healing. This gift shakes his self image as it becomes something outside of his hard work and intellect. Shaken, he must learn to cope with his gift and what it means. With the help of some inspiring characters Peter will explore the many angles, responsibilities and emotions that have transpired from this gift.
Law’s ability to inject humor, dynamic scenery, entertaining dialogue and phenomenal energy into his stories captures both the imagination and the heart long after you have finished with the story.Read more ›
