'I escaped my gilded cage by embracing my geekiness.' -- Stanlei Bellan, author
LOS ANGELES, May 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Stanlei Bellan (https://stanlei.com/) was an internationally renowned advertising professional, the winner of six Cannes Lions awards (think: the Oscars of advertising). He was successful...but not satisfied.
So in 2020 this Brazilian immigrant decided to leave it all behind to go after a dream—becoming a sci-fi writer. But this was no recent dream. Stanlei's geek roots run deep.
Being a geek in the 80s in Brazil was no easy thing. He had to learn English so he could read comic books. (This paid off when he got his first paid job as a teen: translating a Star Trek novel from English to Portuguese.) He would spend hours commuting from his house to the one bookstore that carried imported books at astronomical prices.
He wrote his first time travel story when he was 15 years old. Thirty years later, that story would become the seed for his debut book, T Is for Time Travel.
"I escaped my gilded cage by embracing my geekiness. I hope my stories can also inspire people to dream of possibilities," says Stanlei Bellan, author.
In commemoration of Geek Pride Day on May 25th, the ebook will be free for all to download for three days.
