When Lacey isn’t dreaming of the stars or magical worlds, she can be found stomping around in the wild areas of Northern Oregon with her wife and son, or sipping on a coffee with her trusty notebook and fountain pens. Her writing journey began in the Star Trek: Voyager fandom and has continued for over two decades. At the moment, she’s plugging away at her first novel—a world that’s taken twenty years to come to life. Lacey is eager to continue sharing diverse stories set in dark, but hopeful, worlds.

Hers was the voice that had haunted Isla for three days. In silent, sleepy moments, the memory of her had hummed like the wind through the trees. In the dark of the night, she’d danced through the exposed eaves of Isla’s bedroom like a sprite causing mischief. She’d reverberated between the folds of Isla’s brain, twisting and shifting, so familiar, but her identity had remained out of reach.

This was the voice of broken hearts and partings, of longings and regrets.

This was the voice Isla had imagined as she’d read a hundred letters over the last decade.

And here it was—here she was. The veil between the worlds must have been thin indeed.
