Stacey Filak was born and raised in Michigan. She attended Western Michigan University, where she studied English Secondary Education, mostly so she could read as many books as possible. She has been a waitress, run her own daycare, worked in a warehouse, been a stay-at-home-mom, managed a veterinary clinic and worked at a small town Hardware store. While she has dreamed of being a published author since she was a little girl, she is still pinching herself that her dream is coming true. She lives in Kalamazoo, Michigan with her husband and four kids, a collection of pop-culture named pets, and a hoarder's collection of books.
