About the Author
Stanley Christopher a native of East Chicago, Indiana born of a Baptist Preacher attended Indiana University and Indiana Vocational and Technical College. He studied Fine Arts, Culinary Arts, Poetry, and Theater Costume Design. His entire life has been rooted in the process of being creative, he fondly remembers always wanting to create his own world as early as a young child lying in the floor doodling and drawing. Working in different styles, with the intent of remaining ever fresh and open to the magic and discovery in creating art, he chooses mediums such as oils, acrylics, acrylic links, water colors, colored pencils, and colored markers to bring his images to life. While studying Poetry in college he became interested in writing haiku, sonnets, and short stories. Often he takes advantage of combining the two languages of visual art and spoken word, however for him images have become in many ways more of a viable language than the spoken word. For the last thirty eight years he has uniquely viewed life from a wheelchair after being paralyzed from the waist down. Scaling the everyday barriers of our society can be enough to keep anyone distracted from any real progress in life yet he took the opportunity to prove to the world around him that being labeled handicapped is not synonymous with being "just plain stupid." So he rises like a Phoenix on a slow burn to return and the revelation of his spirit shines immensely throughout his body of work.

The strict rhyme scheme of the sonnet is followed to the letter. Yet, there is no sacrifice of content for the sake of rhyme. Each sonnet tells a unique mini-story and the theme of each poem follows through from the title to the closing lines. Each sonnet is also accompanied by a different piece of pen and ink artwork by the author. I can not say that I have a favorite poem. Each sonnet is as unique as the art work displayed next to it.
A SOUGHT AFTER LOVE, by Stanley Christopher, is an exceptional treasure find.
