Stacey D. Poole

Stacy Poole from Chesterfield, VA, has been married to her husband Mike for over 20 years but swears she is not old! She has homeschooled her three sons, two of which are teenagers with the third on the cusp of joining that club too, for the last decade. Despite her awesome educational and occupational background in public relations and marketing (Go Hokies!) she currently works occasionally as a substitute teacher in the public school system; this allows a flexible schedule for time to be at home with aforementioned children and to do the things she loves: writing poems, stories and devotionals, serving in her church as a ladies Bible study/small group leader, reading and chatting with girlfriends while lounging on the back deck. Stacy has published devotionals in the books A Cup of Comfort Devotional (Bell & Clark) and Big Dreams from Small Spaces (Group Publishing) as well as had poems included in a number of poetry anthologies. Having this children story illustrated enables her to check an item off her bucket list. Ok, maybe she is starting to get “old” if she has a bucket list!
