Meet Lacy

At the age of thirteen, my mother confiscated Judy Blume’s WIFEY from me after she read the first page. My aunt, who was there at the time, laughed, gave me a wink and took the book to read.

Yea, I was pissed. It was the only book I had with me on vacation; but even more so, I wondered why my mother didn’t want me reading that book. It intrigued me that one page from a book could worry my mother and make my aunt laugh at the same time.

From that day forth, I was hooked on romance and specifically romance that had some form of sex in it. Now my idea of hot is way different from what it was then, but I still can’t get enough of that heart pounding rush that comes from reading hot and sexy.

I didn’t know I was a writer until much later in life. After two kids and several careers (photography, software, and management), I decided to see if I could create that same intense rush in others that I got from reading a good story. I found that I love writing. The creativity involved, the idea that you are letting the world see a little bit of your mind in each scene you write. Creating a sexy scene is much more satisfying than reading one.

My first story, a historical romance, is still unfinished. Funny enough, the sex scene threw me. I wanted to make it so special that my readers would get all tingly when reading it, and if I was lucky, perhaps play out the scene. I had no idea how to achieve that, so I decided to take a class.

The amazing Sasha White taught a very helpful class on how to write hot, and ever since, I have had no problems writing sexy. Thanks again Sasha!

My friend, Eva Gale, said I needed to write a short erotic story for a contest that was being held. After much prodding from Eva, I yielded to her pressure and wrote my short erotic novella Night Of the Taking. Boy, am I glad I did.

Night Of the Taking was published in a three novella book of my own work titled WHAT SHE CRAVES in 2007 under Kensington’s Aphrodisia line.

Besides writing, which when I’m in the zone is an all-encompassing obsession, I enjoy spending time with my kids and my friends. I love to ride horses and garden, as well as sitting back with a good glass of wine and watching the world go by.
