Born and raised in Vermontville, Michigan (Don't blink. Oops, you missed it), Stacey grew up drowning herself in the stories of everyone from Nancy Drew to VC Andrews, as a library rat and flashlight reader. Always a little convinced that she had been dropped off by the mothership, she immersed herself in other worlds. Now, as an adult and disappointed muggle, she writes to create those worlds. She is the mother of four and a homemaker in disguise. She lives with her husband and nerdlings in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and is busy scribing her first epic fantasy series, The Auran Cycle.
