Stacy Mantle first discovered her story-telling ability when, at the age of two, she successfully shifted blame for breaking a vase on her newborn brother. Writing fiction seemed to be a logical next step. She wrote her first short story at the age of 8, for which she won a prestigious writing award. She followed this success with a screenplay five years later, for which she received no acclaim at all.

Her first love is animals, and when she's not rescuing them, she's writing about them. In her spare time, she enjoys archery, reading, and avoiding reality. She currently lives in the deserts of the southwest with three dogs, several cats, and a very understanding husband.

You can learn more about her at her website.

Stacy's Recent Updates

Stacy Mantle is now friends with C.E. Vance
Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote
“Never love a wild thing, Mr. Bell,' Holly advised him. 'That was Doc's mistake. He was always lugging home wild things. A hawk with a hurt wing. One time it was a full-grown bobcat with a broken leg. But you can't give your heart to a wild thing: the more you do, the stronger they get. Until they're strong enough to run into the woods. Or fly into a tree. Then a taller tree. Then the sky. That's how you'll end up, Mr. Bell. If you let yourself love a wild thing. You'll end up looking at the sky."
"She's drunk," Joe Bell informed me.
"Moderately," Holly confessed....Holly lifted her martini. "Let's wish the Doc luck, too," she said, touching her glass against mine. "Good luck: and believe me, dearest Doc -- it's better to look at the sky than live there. Such an empty place; so vague. Just a country where the thunder goes and things disappear.”
Truman Capote

In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
