Stacey James


I retired at the age of thirty six to explore the world of a full time writer. Many of my stories are inspired by events from my childhood or by my children, Emily & Jack.

I love to read and watch my kids play sports. My other interests include collecting wine, hosting dinner parties, and movies at home with friends and family.

    This short story is well-paced and action packed. The characters are well defined and interesting. I look forward to more books by this author. I recently read Flash Gold and Hunted and thoroughly enjoyed them both (I think that series may be my favorite, but Lindsay should write a few more in each for me to completely decide:).
