Domestic violence advocate

Having fallen in love with literature at an early age, it only made sense for Stacey Covington-Lee to seek a career that would allow her to combine her passion for writing and her Communications education from Savannah State University. During her lengthy career in the insurance industry as an Instructional and PC Trainer, Stacey wrote and developed multiple training guides and manuals for both insurance companies and local government.

It was at the encouragement of a dear friend that Stacey wrote and released her first novel, The Knife In My Back. Continuing her exploration of love, friendship, and betrayal, she has since given us five additional works of fiction, including her first collection of short stories, The Love That Lies Between Us. She is passionate about and continues to raise social consciousness about sickle cell disease and domestic violence though her writing and speaking engagements.

Stacey is an Atlanta native and has found great enjoyment in visiting book clubs and speaking at various events throughout the country. She loves hearing from readers and invites everyone to visit her website, www.staceycovingtonlee.com, follow her on IG (scovingtonlee),  Twitter (@covingtonlee), Facebook (www.facebook.com/staceycovington-lee), and join her Facebook group (Stacey’s Reading Sanctuary). Stacey is also a contributor to www.caramellattesandstilettos.com blog.
