As you’ll hear in the interview, Stacy and I met about five years ago when we both attended a pizza party while at an American Christian Fiction Writers Conference. What I remember most about that pizza party is that Stacy and I laughed.

The three novels in Stacy’s Chain of Lake Series feature three very different heroines and yet each one answers an important question: Who am I?
During the interview, Stacy talks about the joys and pitfalls of being an indie author, the music scene in Minneapolis (and how “freezing dang cold” it is there), and her appreciation of those who give their hearts to the elderly–an important theme in her next book, Open Circle.
Marti has been on her own since she was 15, determined to build a life for herself and her sister despite the threats of a man intent on keeping her from revealing his secret.
Sam Evans’ turbulent teen years prepared him for the perfect job—counseling troubled youth. Then his pregnant wife walked out on their marriage and his life imploded, leaving him without a family, a job, or his hard-earned reputation.
With her sister in danger, they’re forced to divulge the secrets, lies, and half-truths they’ve kept hidden from each other, and from themselves. If they can’t face the brilliant colors of God’s truth, the consequences may be deadly.
Dance of Grace
In one unexpected moment, dancer Vanessa Jordan lost her family, her career, and her future. She blames God for destroying everything that mattered. Kurt Wagner, an ex-con with a second chance at life and faith, aches to shed his past and see his dream of helping teens become reality. The former dancer and the ex-con form an unlikely alliance to build River House, a safe haven for kids on the street.
When Kurt’s past threatens his dreams and his life, Vanessa becomes a target as well. It will take a stubborn love, the grace of God, and one courageous teen to keep the River House dream alive.
