Lacy Marie


“YA at its darkest, coldest, and most endearing…”

cropped-2.jpg Lacy Marie was born and raised in Kentucky and currently lives in a 1938 farmhouse surrounded by beautiful country views. She’s the wife of a veteran, a mom of three beautiful girls, and the award-winning author of The Girl Who Once Thrived (#2 Amazon Best Seller) and The Unexpected Chosen (featured on FOX news), both part of the Young Adult fantasy series: In the Depths of Hesed. She loves fiction (Harry Potter NERD). Sports have always been a huge part of her life (2001 KCAA Miss. Basketball at state!). Traveling through as much of the world as possible is extremely important to her. And everything fall is her favorite:the weather, the pumpkins, and the football!

After investing seven years in college, Lacy Marie obtained a B.S. in Psychology, Criminal Justice, and Religious Studies, as well as an M.A. in Human Services: Marriage and Family Therapy. She currently works as a master’s level assessment clinician for one of the largest psychiatric hospitals in the nation, completing psychological evaluations for individuals in the local emergency rooms, prisons, courts, and schools.

Lacy Marie’s current series is being written to inspire people to remain loyal to living their lives regardless of life’s circumstances. Because of her desire for helping others, she stepped down from her career and is serving as a mental health advocate and pursuing writing as a creative avenue to impact lives.

If you enjoy raw and genuine tales with twists, exciting adventures, suspense, enchanted and dark creatures, fantasy worlds, and of course, a little touch of romance, you’ll love The Girl Who Once Thrived and The Unexpected Chosen!
