Fiction and art have always been Stacey's passions. She Began drawing under the watchful eye of her mother when she was a child, and she began by writing in the fantasy genre when she was in her mid-teens. Unfortunately her first literary work was lost to a computer malfunction in the days of the floppy disk, and she was left with only a few scant chapters remaining of this first book. To this day it is an ambition of hers to re-start and finish that first book, but her horror writing is her primary focus. Her artwork began in traditional formats and to this day she still enjoys oil painting and working with pastels, though these days most of her artwork is digital.
Stacey was introduced to the world of horror at a young age thanks to the likes of R.L Stine, and then the accidental viewing of one of the halloween series at the age of 8 years old. She instantly developed a taste for horror and has never looked back. An avid reader of horror fiction, and watcher of horror films, she was introduced to the world of more adult horror writing by her mother lending her a copy of the magic cottage by James Herbert. After that fateful reading she avidly sought out his work, and he remains one of her favourite authors. Stacey also enjoys the writing of Dean Koontz, Richard Laymon and Stephen King. Primarily interested in supernatural horror, Stacey has a real love for 'creature feature' style books and films, and this comes across in her art and literature. She greatly enjoys blending the unreal elements of the supernatural with real human horrors. She also enjoys tackling taboo subject matter in her writing, and including day to day realisms to keep her stories and characters relatable despite the fantasy elements. Her artwork tends to revolve around horror, fantasy and animals, and she is working on a fantasy/horror based comic.
Not only is Stacey an artist and author, but also a keen animal lover and cancer survivor. She has a passion for unusual animals and is especially fond of hairless pets. She has even been on the committee of the UK Xoloitzcuintli club, and was a keen dog show attendee in her youth. She also thoroughly enjoys crafting and crochet is a particular favourite of hers, make of that what you will! She was diagnosed with cervical cancer and then treated in 2013, and is now thankfully in remission.
