About the Author:

Connie Lacy worked for many years as a radio reporter and news anchor, after dabbling in acting in college and community theater. Those experiences show up in some of her novels.

Her passion for human rights prompted her to write "A Daffodil for Angie," a historical novel set in the 1960s. Her interest in climate change led her to imagine a not-too-distant future when oceans have risen fifteen feet. That's the backdrop for "The Shade Ring Trilogy." And her fascination with time travel and the paranormal are on display in "The Time Telephone" and "VisionSight: a Novel."

Growing up, she lived in Japan and Okinawa where her Army dad was stationed. She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke with a degree in Journalism and Creative Writing. She and her husband live in Atlanta.
