Welcome to my web site and blog!

If you’re new here, then let me introduce myself. I’m Stacy Juba, an author, freelance editor, online course creator, and longtime journalist. My goal with my fiction is to take readers on a mental vacation. Through my novels, they can visit the Catskill Mountains and catch up with old friends at the Storybook Valley theme park, as well as travel to New England small towns in all their seasonal glory. I want readers to relax in a comfy chair with a cup of cocoa, or stretch out by the pool with a refreshing lemonade, allowing my words to carry them away from their daily stress.

In my world

Telling stories is an absolute necessity.

Voices in my head are 100 percent normal.

Shopping for colored pens and fancy notebooks is always a fantastic idea.

Going to work means mentoring authors and reading future bestsellers in my pajamas.

A stack of books on my nightstand and 500 titles on my Kindle are mandatory.

Listening to Eye of the Tiger before writing a big scene or while driving to a book signing is totally reasonable.

Clients and students are my friends. They’re creative dreamers and doers with amazing stories and a weird Google search history. 

In a complicated world, I strive for simplicity and systems. 

Giving up is never an option.

I always find a better way and inspire others to do the same.
