Jackie Chanel


I live life by one simple quote..."When Life Gives You Lemons, Throw Them Back and Scream, "Limes, Motherf&%$er, I Want Limes!"

It's this rebellious attitude that started me on the path of writing fiction novels. I write because it allows me to escape the routine of every day life. I write about relationships, not just romantic relationships. My books focus on the relationships between friends, siblings, lovers, and parents.

My characters are a reflection of the people I has encountered along my journey to find who I am as a writer and as a person.

I am "just a small town girl", born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio. I now live in Atlanta, Georgia. I often think of Atlanta as a place were dreams are formed and then people get out to live them.

My writing career began at an early age. I was just in high school when I began working on me first novel. As I studied Biology at Georgia State University, I began my second novel, Change of Heart, and quickly decided that Biology wasn't where my talent lied. Despite many protests, I switched to Creative Writing which was instrumental in jump starting my career.

I often say that music is my influence and without it, I would not be alive. Other than music, I also enjoy reading and watching movies, and spending time with the people I love.

  • The Toilet Business on June 19, 2011

    The first words that come to mind when I started The Toilet Business..."Girl, I know exactly what you mean!" From endless job to endless non gratifying job just to pay the bills, any person who reads these tales can relate. I laughed from page 1 until the end of the book and when I say end, I mean the very last page. Stacy's humor is quirky and a little bit sarcastic. She's hilarious! I knew that I was going to like this book when I read the introduction: "I didn't really figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up until I was thirty-five" I'm 31 and I just recently just figured out what I wanted to be when I grow up so I completely related to this statement and this book overall! I'm glad that Stacy shared her hilarious work experiences so those of us who go through the same things know that we are not alone :)
