Book Lover Blog


"Every page offers something different in this book. It's children's literature at its finest."

Teeny Tiny Toes Blog


"This is book is absolutely wonderful! My children have enjoyed this book so much-such a sweet story with great characters. It’s chosen again and again at bedtime by my youngest. A new family favorite for us and must buy for any family!"

Katie (Amazon Review)


"A wonderfully written story that reminds us that not everyone communicates in the same way. It’s a book that both my kids and I are enjoying. My sister who works with non verbal students thought it was a wonderful book. A great reminder for us all about inclusion."

Korrine (Amazon Review)

Stacy Burch is a traditionally published children's author for books ranging from picture books to middle grade novels. Her debut picture book, A Way With Words (August 2022), and her second picture book, SEARCHING FOR SLEEP (October 2022) are both available now to order! She earned her B.A. in English and a B.S. in Secondary Education from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA. As a high school English teacher for 10+ years, she happily created stories, edited papers, and fostered budding young minds before receiving her M.A. in Secondary English Curriculum Design from Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, WV. 

Stacy and her husband moved to Brussels, Belgium where they were fortunate to travel the world. During this time, Stacy worked at the College of Advertising and Design (CAD) before returning to the USA. Thanks to their passion for regenerative agriculture, Stacy, her husband, and their three young children are hoping to start a sustainable, family mini farm. When not writing stories, chasing kids, or freelance editing, Stacy presents (virtually and in-person) on various topics, such as the creative writing process, curriculum design for the modern child, and her books (of course!).

Author Visits


As a former teacher and current children's author, Stacy is passionate about presenting to kids! She is available for short or long presentations for pre-k through 12th grade, ranging from 30 minutes to full school days. These visits can be in-person or virtual.


Fun and engaging presentations are flexible and can be tailored per audience but typically include some combination of the following: pre/post-reading activity, reading (whole book or sample), Q&A, book signing, and/or whole group discussion.

Possible discussion topics:

  • The writing process: How to generate ideas, create story structure, and revision.

  • The path to publication: All steps from ideas to finished product.

  • How we communicate: The importance of communication in all its forms, including nonverbal.

  • Other: Don't see a discussion topic that suits your needs? No worries! Contact Stacy to create a custom presentation.

* Book sales not required; however, personalized books can be

   ordered in advance from the school's preferred vendor.
