Stacey Dannerof Hood River, Oregon is a CPA by day and a poet by...well, whenever she gets the time to write. She formerly lived in Seattle, where she met her co-readers tonight, Pam and Sam, at summer camp for poets at the Richard Hugo House in 2007. Thanks to the miracles of modern technology, namely Skype, the three poets have continued to meet semi-regularly even after Stacey moved to Oregon.
When not crunching numbers or penning rhymes, Stacey loves spending time with her husband, two stepsons, and fluffy dog; swimming; reading; riding her electric bike; and otherwise enjoying life in the Columbia River Gorge.
