Stacy Dymalski brings the story of a prisoner to life. Over the course of numerous phone conversations, the stories trapped behind bars begin to piece together in Stacy's latest novel.

Stacy is an author, standup comic, corporate speaker, and filmmaker. In other words, Stacy is simply a storyteller.

Her latest books include the hysterical bestseller “Confessions of a Band Geek Mom” and the self-publishing bible “The Memoir Midwife: Nine Steps to Self-Publishing Your Book.” In 2012 Stacy was a semi-finalist in the Toastmasters International Speech Contest, in which she competed for the title of World Champion of Public Speaking with her inspirational speech, “Wynton Marsalis Had My Back.”

She lives in Park City, UT, with her Chihuahua, Chico, and keeps the home fires burning for when her 18- and 21-year-old sons come home to visit from college. Check out her website at
