Stacie Vaughan is a mom of two daughters, ages 6 and 12, and currently lives in Nova Scotia, Canada. She studied business at both Algonquin College and University of New Brunswick and then went on to pursue her CGA (Certified General Accountant) designation while working full-time in a public practice accounting firm. In 2007, she left the workforce to be a stay-at-home mom and follow another path.
In 2008, she found her way into the wonderful world of blogging and started the review & giveaway site, Simply Stacie. In the past two years, her site has grown enormously and has become one of the top review & giveaway blogs in Canada. She now has four writers on her team(Kimmel!!) who review products and perform book reviews. Stacie has begun to focus more on Social Media and growing her readership and has taken an active interest in helping other bloggers achieve their goals too. Stacie has worked with numerous companies, PR and handmade businesses over the last two years on Social Media campaigns and helping them get the word out about their product or business. She has also organized many multi-blog events included the Holiday Gift Giveaway Hop and the Handmade with Love Giveaway Hop where 200+ blogs participated.
My name is Kimmel and I was born in Utah but I’ve been a native to Oregon since I was twelve. I married my high school sweetheart and we’ve been married for six years. Together we have two adorable little girls and hope to add to them. My husband is in the Air Force so we will be leaving beautiful Oregon to discover new parts of the world.
I have been blessed with the opportunity to be a stay at home wife and mother. This gives me lots of time to read, one of my favorite things to do. I will read almost anything if the premise appeals to me, however I do tend to migrate towards Fantasy and Science Fiction. I’m also a sucker for a good love story and I enjoy the thrill of a good mystery. My favorite authors include, but are not limited to, Terry Goodkind, Orson Scott Card, Brandon Sanderson, Dean Koontz, and LaVyrle Spencer.
I have recently been developing my writing skills, my second favorite hobby. I’ve been working on a Young Adult novel that will hopefully be finished within the next two months.
Life with two little girls is hectic, but reading keeps me sane. I look forward to offering my opinions to those who love the same things I do in the hopes that they can find their next great love!
