An early passion for The Babysitters Club and those irrepressible Wakefield Twins of the Sweet Valley High series ensured a lifelong love of reading. Today, Stacy’s tastes range from the epic historical sagas of Ken Follett and Phillippa Gregory to the acerbic wit of David Sedaris to the fabulous fiction of Marian Keyes, Jane Green, and Sophie Kinsella.
