Stacie is a member of the Writers’ League of Texas. She is working on two fiction novels–a romantic suspense and a contemporary romance. Stacie is also working toward an associate’s degree in information management and has plans for a bachelor’s in creative writing, journalism, or English-related field. Between classes, the Job Search, and motherhood, she enthusiastically performs freelance work on Elance.com and routinely submits articles for publication in magazines.

Stacie’s hobbies include writing, reading, blogging, couponing, and spending time with friends and family. Her interests include gardening, motherhood/parenting, animals/pets, billiards, budgeting, living frugally, self-sufficiency, survivalist/prepping (not the hardcore we’re-all-gonna-die type, but the be-smart-and-prepare-for-anything type), and anything creative, unique, or thought-provoking.
In the past, Stacie has experienced life in the customer service, sales, administrative, child care, and animal care/husbandry industries. She has dabbled in web design, marketing publications, drawing, decorating, painting, random crafty-projects, etc. Basically, anything creative she’s attempted, but nothing calls to her quite like writing does.
That’s why she’s here.
