Stacia Rogan was born in the backwoods of Pennsylvania where she grew up with her younger brother and sister before forging a path out. She ran off to the wilds of Western New York where she pushed aside her passions for music, writing, and marketing to instead pursue a more practical but soul-sucking degree in Computer Science.
The lure of warmer weather and gainful employment brought Stacia and her husband to Raleigh, North Carolina, where she spent the next decade locked away in various cubicles programming under fluorescent lights. She did her best to find openings in her daily work for writing and marketing and natural light but a difference of vision left her seeking after-hours opportunities instead.
Eventually, the “webchicky,” as she had become known, decided to spread her wings and fly far from the nest of IT, launching a full-time freelancing career that allows her to focus on her real love – words! She now spends her work days (and occasional nights) editing, writing, and reading words, most of which she shares on her blog, Rhymes with Croatia.
In 2015, Stacia, her husband, and their two evil cats packed up their things and moved to Alexandria, Virginia, where life has never been better!
