The Independent Voice Celebrates Staci Stallings

Tell us about you
A stay-at-home mom with a husband, three kids and a writing addiction on the side, Staci Stallings has numerous titles for readers to choose from.  Not content to stay in one genre and write it to death, Staci's stories run the gamut from young adult to adult, from motivational and inspirational to full-out Christian and back again.  Every title is a new adventure! 

Tell us 5 Random Things about you the person, not the author:
1) I lived in a small town and worked on my parents' dairy farm until I was 18.
2) I like cats way more than dogs.  Cats can do their own thing and don't think you have to be watching them every second.
3) Wii Snowboarding is the best! Just wish I would have discovered it when my knees were better.
4) When I taught high school English, I made the mistake of reading "A Farewell to Arms" (WWII) with one class and "A Separate Peace" (WWI) with another at the same time.  I don't recommend that!
5) I was one of 34 semi-finalists for the Kairos Movie Script prize in 2007 for the screenplay for Cowboy.

Just out of college and completely alone in the world, Maggie Montgomery has one shot left to save her life from an abyss of poverty and hopelessness. Clinging to the last shred of fuel and hope, she arrives at the mansion of Texas billionaire Conrad Ayers. Although Maggie is clearly not what Mr. Ayers and his wife have in mind for a nanny, they agree to hire her temporarily until they can find someone more appropriate to fill the position. However, Maggie's whole world is about to be up-ended by two way-over-scheduled children and one incredibly handsome hired hand. As she struggles to fit into a world she was never made to fit in, Maggie wonders if she can ever learn to become a perfect version of herself so she can keep the job, or is she doomed to always be searching for a life she can never quite grasp?
