I was born in Los Angeles, California on January 23, 1977 to the parents of Margaret Carter, and Celester Mickle. I have 3 sisters. One is older than me, and 2 are younger than me. Since I was 12 years old, I have been writing Christian Inspirational Poetry. Currently, I published 3 books of Christian Inspirational Poetry with my publishing company. I am working on publishing my fourth book of Christian Inspirational Poetry. One day I would like to write Christian Inspirational Plays, and publish them. All of my Christian inspirational poems are inspired by the Lord Jesus Christ. I don't write any of my Christian Inspirational Poems of the Lord Jesus Christ don't give me the words to them. Soon, I will have my books in bookstores across the USA, and internationally. On May 21, 2012, I obtained my Bachelor of Art Degree in Religion from Clark Atlanta University, located in Atlanta, Georgia.

“I think it’s important to present strong, beautiful, curvy women that have amazing female to female relationships,” commented Lacey, on what motivates her. “If we don’t provide alternative role models for people, they could fall into the trap of not loving who is looking them back in the mirror. Romantic fiction should entertain, but it should also help build confidence and a great self-image. I’m trying to cover all these things and more in my books.”
According to the author, Lacey had a quite unexpected entry into writing. Although always interested in being a writer she never explored her skills fully until being convinced to join a writing contest. Within 30 days she had finished her first novel, won the contest, and never looked back. An example of a woman with confidence proving to herself, and the world, what can be accomplished when dreams are pursued actively.
Some of her most popular books in the plus size women genre include: Phoenix Rising; A Very Curvy Christmas; Dr. Black’s Patient; Love’s Legacy; Shelby’s Awakening; and many, many more.
Readers have responded to her work with enthusiasm.

About her book, When Wifey is the Plug
They say behind every great man, lies a great woman. But when it comes to Silk and Reyna, a wife has so many roles...
DeAndre "Silk" Weaver is the epitome of a dope boy in every way, and Reyna Miller has proven to be more than the average ride or die chick. Falling in love, and saying "I Do", Reyna is ready to settle down and be a family woman. But when a situation arises that shakes her world, she's forced to once again hold her man down, and betrayal hits her from those she least expects.
The roles are reversed and Reyna is taking over, letting it be known that she is more than just a pretty face. But her own secrets can cost her the only man she's ever loved.
The deeper she gets into the game, the harder it is to get out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended Read

This book was definitely 5 star & the author knows exactly how to have you coming back for more. The relationship alone between Reyna & Silk held my interest. His occupation & her position just added to it. There are definitely some situations in this book that will be good for discussions. Like I originally thought Reyna was smart & that true ride or die but I guess after her emotional loss, she changed because the whole Kendrick situation was just questionable to me. Was she too far over her head or was it her form of revenge for Silks' actions. I understand using Danielle but why throw Detric under the bus, not knowing what could happen. Like I said, this book will definitely have you on edge & talking to the characters in your head! Ready for part 2 to see what other drama unfolds.
