Impossible: My story

My world from my earliest being has been filled with drugs and violence and sex — things no kid should even know about… But I am the impossible made possible.

HarperCollins, 2020

It was a privilege to work with Stan on his book. Over many, many hours he explored with incredible honesty and courage the factors that have shaped him into the man he is today. Violence, poverty, sexual abuse – but also love, loyalty and, against all odds, hope. He has the voice of angels, and the heart of a warrior. He hopes his story will help other young people. Here’s his message: ‘Your past does not define your future.’

‘Impossible’ spent several weeks at No 2 in the Nielsen BookScan New Zealand bestseller list.
