Stacie grew up surrounded by the cornfields of Illinois, and though she now lives in the swamplands of Louisiana — she’s still that Midwestern girl, chasing fireflies through humid summers and building snowmen in frozen winters. Daughter, mother, singer, writer — she is a dreamer who began writing as a young teen and never stopped. She studied English, Music, & Psychology in college, eventually earning two degrees from Illinois State University. She has self-published three books of poetry in 2016: Space to Dream, Canvas of Imagination, and Spring Awakening. She’s currently working on a children’s novel.
