Brigit Stacey, Storyteller
Screenplays. Novels. Children's books. Short fiction. Songs. No matter the form, I love to tell stories.
Growing up in an Irish family, stories were part of every day life. At family events, relatives quickly became seanchaís, weaving together tales of our family history with theatrical flare. At home, my mother, an English teacher, started encouraging me at a young age to tell my own stories.
So that’s what I do every chance I get.
When I’m not writing, I’m taking care of my three children (or should I say, when I’m not taking care of my three children, I’m writing), and spending time with family and friends, ever grateful for my tight-knit community. Writing songs with my musician husband is another way I enjoy spending my time. And when I get a moment alone, I try to read any novel that will suck me into its world.
Mostly, I write stories about love, either in the form of wholesome romance or fantasy romance. Nature is my muse and my favorite color is sunrise. And if you ever see me twirling my hair, staring off into the distance, there’s a good chance I’m coming up with a story involving a girl and a boy falling in love in a beautiful setting. What can I say? I live somewhere between fantasy and reality, where everything is steeped in fiction.
