Stacy Lash lives in Maine with her husband, Daniel, their two Miniature Pinschers, Duke and Duchess, and several cats.
She credits her love of writing to her father, Milton, who filled her formative years with tall-tales. The way he was able to take something mundane and exaggerate it to the point that it seemed fantastical, instilled in her a desire to accomplish the same thing, but with the written word. He is also responsible for the majority of the uncanny phrases she uses in her pieces.
Stacy has been writing as far back as she can remember. She first delved into story writing in grade school, compiling an anthology of tales related to her cat, Rambo. While that tapped her literary juices, it wasn’t until her early 30’s that she began to write in earnest. Soon after the suicide of her step-father, Raymond, Stacy began a journey into writing that she can no longer hope to escape from. She has embraced it as much a part of herself as her own skin.
There is no one genre that can apply to the bulk of her work, it ranges from creative non-fiction all the way to science fiction and fantasy. Some of her favorite topics delve into women’s rights and strong relationships between female characters.
Stacy holds her BA in English from the University of Maine at Augusta and her MA in Professional Writing from New England College. Though her passion is writing, her career has taken on a more educational focus and she finds fulfillment as an adult education instructor at her local school district.
