For me writing started out being a way to vent and express my emotions. I’ve always been able to write what’s in my mind better than I can actually verbalize it. I’ve been through so much in my life that I don’t necessarily want to talk about it to anyone. Writing gets all that out of my head. When writing a novel, I can lose myself in the world I create. I can make characters that are deeply flawed, but so full of strength and love. While writing, I laugh with my characters, get mad at them, and cry with them. It sounds so strange to say those things, but it’s true. I suppose only an author understands what it’s like to build a fictional world. After I finish a novel, I find I miss the characters terribly.
I try to weave issues everyday people deal with into my stories. My hope is that I can make a difference in just one person’s life. While my books are romance novels, they still carry a strong message about strength, trust, and perseverance. The stories are fictional, but the issues are very real. When writing an emotional scene I hope the words make the reader hurt to read. If that happens then I’ve done my job as a writer. I find that when I’m dealing with something personal that’s weighing on me; I can lose myself in a well written story. I’m hoping that my books can do the same for someone else.
Lacie lives in Columbus, Ga with her boyfriend of four years and their dog, Libby. She spends most of her time reading and writing. She writes from a very personal place and finds that creating a story based off of things she has been through is very cleansing. She is extremely close to my family so she tends to use little quirks that she loves from her family members to create characters that are realistic.
