Reading with Your Kids Podcast ft. Stacie Ramey, author of “The Sister Pact”
Happy Sunday everyone!
If you have been listening to our podcast, you may remember Young Adult author Stacie Ramey‘s appearance on the podcast. We’re thrilled to have her back on the show to talk about her latest novel “The Sister Pact“, which follows the story of two sisters, Leah and Allie, who take control of a dark family life by hoarding pills and swearing a suicide pact.
Stacie is joining us to talk about her book, What inspired her to write and what makes her book unique. Tune in to find out!
Here’s more information about Stacie Ramey
Stacie Ramey is a young adult author who is represented by Nicole Resciniti of The Seymour Agency.
Stacie learned to read at a very early age to escape the endless tormenting of her older siblings. Where the Wild Things Are was her first favorite book and she swore she’d only marry a man who could prove he had rumpus in his heart!
She attended the University of Florida and Penn State where she received a Master of Science degree in Speech Pathology. She also met her future husband at Penn State, who surprised her one day with all of the stuffed Wild Things’ characters, proving his worth.
She currently works with high school aged Autistic kids, introducing them to the literary worlds she grew up loving. When she’s not working or writing, she engages in Netflix wars with her children or beats her husband in Scrabble, all while watching the Florida Gators and Penn State Nittany Lions play (Go Gators).
She lives in Florida with her husband, children, and rescue dogs.
More about The Sister Pact
A suicide pact was supposed to keep them together, but a broken promise tore them apart
Allie is devastated when her sister commits suicide—and it’s not just because she misses her. Allie feels betrayed. The two made a pact that they’d always be together, in life and in death, but Leah broke her promise and Allie needs to know why.
Her parents hover. Her friends try to support her. And Nick, sweet Nick, keeps calling and flirting. Their sympathy only intensifies her grief.
But the more she clings to Leah, the more secrets surface. Allie’s not sure which is more distressing: discovering the truth behind her sister’s death or facing her new reality without her.
