Stacey Becker is a 30-something writer who lives with her very tall, Star Wars-loving husband in New York City along with their baby daughter and equally cute dog, Wally. Disguised as a corporate lawyer, Stacey circumvents any serious legal discussions in favor of analyzing relationships, her relatable day-to-day adventures and trashy television. She blogs about these topics at http://OfficeStace.com.
Since the arrival of her baby, Stacey has embraced the sleep-deprived sorority of motherhood with open arms. When not experiencing commuter rage, changing diapers or participating in spontaneous dance parties in her apartment, Stacey jogs in Central Park, plays ping pong with her husband on their dining room table and thinks of excuses to avoid bridal showers.
