Top Ten Author Myths - A short interactive presentation in the form of true/false, introducing and dispelling some of the most common beliefs people have about being an author (e.g. “Once you’ve sold a book, you’ve got it made. Watch for the money to start rolling in.” “Professional authors get the story right in the first draft, leaving only minor grammatical errors to be addressed in a second draft.”) A handout with the myths is available. (Time required: 30 minutes, plus Q&A)

Tales of a Grade School Liar (Or, How I Became a Writer) - Stacey discusses the convoluted (and often humorous) path that led to her becoming an author: telling wild tales in grade school to land a better lunch seat, slightly misusing a corporate development class, and a near-disastrous attempt at operating heavy machinery. Stacey will share a technique to help students identify and work toward their own “impossible” dreams.

The daughter of a minister and a music teacher, Stacey Kade grew up reading Harlequin romances on the sly in the basement. Kade is the author of two young adult series (The Ghost and Goth trilogy and the Project Paper Doll series). 738 DAYS is her first adult contemporary romance.

Prior to writing full time, Kade worked as an award-winning copywriter for several Fortune 500 companies. She lives in the Chicago suburbs with her husband, Greg, their two retired racing greyhounds, and one mischievous French Pointer puppy.
