ABOUT STACE

Hi, I’m Stace! I’m a writer, an artist and an LGBTQ speaker. I live in beautiful Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.

My queer illustrated memoir “Still Stace: My Gay Christian Coming-Of-Age Story” recently published on Oct 19, 2021.

My passion is illustrating and writing kids books! I’m always working on about five (queer) book ideas at once.

I also love (queer) speaking at churches or conferences and connecting with people!

I’m represented by Claire Draper of The Bent Agency in NYC.

Currently, I am Art Directing a series of shorts for DreamWorks in Vancouver at Doberman Pictures

I happily claim a little corner in an animation studio, where I have somehow managed to get paid to draw and colour children’s cartoons since 2011.

Here’s me opening up my author copies of STILL STACE – with GLEE!

When I’m not drawing or writing, I enjoy hiking, biking or jogging around BC, dancing with my kids, and staying up late sharing cups of (perhaps too strong) coffee.

I am fascinated by life. I believe there is beauty in everyone, and a smidgen of kindness can go a long way.


Queer Preaching!
