About Stacy Collins

Stacy was born and raised in the small town of Clinton, South Carolina, where everyone knows everybody, and you learn to always allow fifteen extra minutes for the thirty trains that come through town every day. Stacy has always had a love for reading and writing. As a young child she would write stories and poems to share with her friends.
