I'm a thirtysomething SAHM working on my second novel, a psychological thriller. It will be my first attempt at getting published.
When I'm not writing or navigating through the sea of social media, you'll find me playing with my precocious five-year-old daughter and trying to find a quiet moment for myself. My husband says I watch way too many true crime shows and shakes his head when I spout off my latest research on serial killers.
Don't worry, my life isn't all about the macabre. I love to garden - roses and lilies are my favorites - and I'm also learning to cook healthy after having reached my weight loss goal of 64 pounds.
The boring stuff: degree in Journalism and Mass Communication from Drake University with a minor in Sociology. At Drake, I wrote for the newspaper and Drake Magazine and helped to launch 515 Magazine, which now serves as the city magazine for Des Moines. After graduation, I wound up in advertising where I worked until the birth of my miracle child (we beat the odds of genetics) in December 2005. I chose to stay at home with her and my love for writing was reborn.
One long romance novel later (a work that will never see the light of day), I got serious about my writing career and began my current WIP, a thriller set in Las Vegas.

Welcome to She Writes, Stacy! I saw you in the Your First Novel group. Your novel's set in Vegas? If you need a brain to pick, I lived in Las Vegas for ten years. Best of luck with your writing! :) Becca
Tension is key to keeping readers engaged, no matter what type of novel you’re writing. The tension can be overt and driving, as in a mystery, thriller or sci fi fantasy adventure, or it can be subtle and pervasive, as in a more literary novel. We…See More
