About Stacy

Stacy Juba

Stacy Juba got engaged at Epcot Theme Park and spent part of her honeymoon at Disneyland Paris, where she ate a burger, went on fast rides, and threw up on the train ride to the hotel. In addition to working on her Storybook Valley chick lit/sweet romance series, Stacy has written books about ice hockey, teen psychics, U.S. flag etiquette for kids, and determined women sleuths. She has had a novel ranked as #5 in the Nook Store and #30 on the Amazon Kindle Paid List. Stacy is also the founder of the Glass Slipper Sisters, a group of authors with fairy tale-themed romance novels. When she’s not visiting theme parks with her family, (avoiding rides that spin and exotic hamburgers) or writing about them, Stacy helps authors to strengthen their manuscripts through her editing and online course business Shortcuts for Writers.

Award-winning writer Stacy Juba loves reading novels as much as writing them and has authored titles ideal for book clubs or the beach. She loves to write stories that are crisp, fresh, and satisfying and that feature characters at a crossroads in their lives. She has authored books about reality TV contestants targeted by a killer, an obit writer investigating a cold case, teen psychics who control minds, a theme park Cinderella finding her Prince Charming, twin high school hockey stars battling on the ice, and teddy bears learning to raise the U.S. flag: she pursues whatever story ideas won’t leave her alone. Stacy has made bestseller lists including GalleyCat’s Barnes & Noble Bestsellers, GalleyCat’s Mystery and Thriller Bestsellers, and multiple Amazon Top 100 lists, and she has also been ranked as one of the Most Popular Authors in Mysteries on Amazon. She has had a book ranked as #5 in the Nook Store and #30 on the Amazon Kindle Paid List.

Stacy’s first novel Face-Off, about twin brothers competing on the hockey rink for their father’s approval, was originally published when she was 18 years old under her maiden name, Stacy Drumtra, and has been re-issued for a new generation of readers. She released the sequel, Offsides, 26 years after the publication of Face-Off. She is a past recipient of the William F. Deeck – Malice Domestic Grant for new mystery writers.

Stacy has written more than 3,000 articles and won over a dozen writing awards, including recognition from the New England Press Association, Parenting Publications of America, Suburban Newspapers of America, and the Stuttering Foundation of America. She is also a winner of the American Cancer Society New England Chapter’s Sword of Hope Media Award. She features books and authors on her blog, and also reviews books, apps, and other resources that support families raising a child with Type 1 Diabetes.

After years of working as a reporter, Stacy now concentrates on writing books and helping other writers through her editing and online course business Shortcuts for Writers and private Facebook group for writers. Her signature course is Book Editing Blueprint: A Step-By-Step Plan To Making Your Novels Publishable.

She is the founder of the Glass Slipper Sisters, a group of authors who have published fairy tale and royalty romance novels. When not busy with her husband and family, Stacy enjoys doing yoga and Zentangle, meditating, playing Just Dance games on Wii, and reading mystery and romance novels.
