Like anyone else, I am not just a writer, I am also a husband and the father of a young girl who has a taste for hugs with running head starts. As a father, I can't wait to see how her personality and interests will develop.
As a writer... I grew up in the hills of central NY entertaining a hobby of filling journals with poetry and short stories. That sounds cliche but it's true. By my college years however, believing that there was no future in creative writing, I switched gears and studied journalism instead. I attended Morrisville State College where I worked for the college newspaper and along the way added article writing to my list of writing interests. I went on to study technical communication and earn ... read more

I'm Eddie. At school I enjoyed English literature and History but I majored in commercial studies. My first attempt of writing was in 2001 when I had just finished writing my high school exams. I was inspired by my religious faith to write a motivational book which I decided to call The Chronicles of Success. This writing is still work in progress and yet to be completed. I have written 2 articles that were printed in the Zimbabwean newspapers, The Herald and The Independent. These were comments about the socio-political realities there. I enjoyed reading literature by African writers especially West African writers like Chinua Achebe and Ngugi wa Thiongo. Their writings particularly fascinated me because of th ... read more

I suffered from anorexia and bulimia for over 20 years since the age of ten. During those years I saw a variety of ‘professionals’ who were unhelpful to say the least. There is a lot of stigma surrounding eating disorders even now and it is hard to find a professional who can help. What I have learned is that one of the most important things about therapy is that the person giving it needs to have very healthy self esteem. The blind cannot lead the blind, well they can but they’ll probably both end up in a ditch. Seriously, how can someone with low self esteem help someone else with low self esteem?
And if somebody is inclined to judge, then truly they are judging themselves too and cannot help either th ... read more

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.
