Stacey Joy Netzel

Biography

I fell in love with books at a young age, so for me it seemed only natural to graduate to writing them...when I'm not chained to my desk at the day job as a corporate travel agent. I credit my parents for encouraging my dreams of becoming a published author, as well as the very talented friends I've made in Romance Writers of America and Wisconsin Romance Writers (WisRWA) since joining in 2004.

An avid reader and lover of movies with happy endings, I still live in Wisconsin with my husband and three children, a couple horses and some barn cats. In my limited free time I enjoy gardening and canning, and visiting my parents up north at the cabin on the lake with the whole family.
