Stanley Joseph Revich (born January 19, 1932, Toronto) is a Canadian author. He writes under the name, S. J. Revich.

Revich was born in Toronto, Ontario to immigrants to Canada from Eastern Europe. He attended Harbord Collegiate Institute, and studied medicine at the University of Toronto where he graduated in 1956 with an M.D. degree.

After practicing medicine for thirty years, Revich began work on a series of novels with historical stories about the adventures of Jewish young people in Europe and the Middle East. He authored six books in the series, collectively titled "Tales from the East". The Tales from the East series was published by Bristol, Rhein, and Englander, and each volume sold several thousand copies worldwide.

S. J. Revich continues to write books and stories for young people. His most recent work departs from the Jewish themed work of his earlier novels to explore the more universal theme of humanity's encounters with nature. He currently resides in Toronto and in Scottsdale, Arizona.
