About the Author

Rob Stanley lives on the Sunshine Coast in Australia with his beautiful Great Dane Murray.

His professional career over the past 20 years has seen him work as an art director in advertising and design agencies. One day Rob decided to write and illustrate Magnificent Murray to share the simple joys and love a giant dog like Murray can bring into one’s life.

Rob plans to make Magnificent Murray a series of children’s books with stories based around love, kindness and friendship with a few cliche ‘big dog-isms’ thrown in. Rob has written a follow up story to Magnificent Murray and is currently in the illustration process.
