About the Author

I’m Staci Troilo, and I’ve been writing stories ever since I can remember. Granted, the ones I wrote in grade school aren’t really of publishing quality, but I enjoyed writing them at the time nonetheless. I have a Master’s Degree in writing from Carnegie Mellon University, and I’ve been working as a writer and/or an English professor since 1994. Now that my two wonderful children are older (and presumably self-sufficient), I’ve decided to take the time for myself and write novels. Notice I didn’t say try to write novels. My husband always tells our kids not to try to do something but to actually do it, so that’s what I’m doing. I’ve already published my first and secured an agent, so I’m off to a great start. It’s great having a supporting and loving family. Now if I can just get the puppies to leave me alone long enough to string two coherent sentences together, I’ll be in good shape for finishing what I’ve started… But they’re so darn cute!

      We dog owners… what a cross to bear! I wouldn’t trade it for anything, though.

    If you haven’t already received the Reality Blog Award (I didn’t see it on your wall) now you have. Hang it proudly. Here is the shortlink http://wp.me/p2828d-iQ
    If you have already received it (and have it hidden) you are just too darn special. At least a few of us think so.
