Stacey chillemi Personal Bio

Stacey Chillemi was born on March 7, 1972. She grew up "in New Jersey," in the part of central Jersey that lies between the New York and Pennsylvania.

I have always been a storyteller: "I used to beg my grandmother to let me her stories about the good old days." As a child, she wrote stories and essays and, beginning at young adolescents, kept a journal religiously. Still, it never occurred to me that I could become a professional writer. Growing up in the suburbs, in a blue-collar area, writing did not seem to be a practical career choice. Besides, the writers I read "were bestsellers.  It was inconceivable that I might grow up to be one of those myself . . .”

I left
Matawan, New Jersey to attend Richard Stockton College of New Jersey in Pomona, where I majored in Marketing and advertisement. She also took one creative writing course, and became active in helping people who were had disabilities and diseases.  I began helping people with special needs. Before and after graduating in 1996, I worked in New York for NBC TV Network.

In the mid nineties, I began writing my first book in college, Epilepsy You’re Not Alone.”   I had it published six years later.

After I wrote my first book, I received hundreds of letters telling me how much my book helped them.  It was then that I realized how powerful words can be.


I still remembered when I received an email from a woman who had epilepsy and had no idea how to cope with her disorder.  She told me in the email that she was on her last string.  She was considering committing suicide because she felt like her life was not worth living.  She was in a book and something told her to pick this book up.  She told my book, Epilepsy You’re Not Alone and bought it.  She read the book and she said it changed her life.  She no longer wants to end her life because the information I supplied her in the book gave her new meaning to life. 


I had tears in my eyes when I read that email.  It was then I realized that my writing had meaning and that one of my purposes in writing was to help others.

I written feature writing for journals and newspapers. My articles have appeared in dozens of newspapers and magazines in North America and abroad. In 2002, I won an award from the Epilepsy Foundation of America for my help and dedication in helping people with epilepsy.


I have published:


1.      The Complete Herbal Guide: A Natural Approach to Healing the Body

2.      Natural Cures For Common Conditions

3.      Epilepsy You're Not Alone

4.      Eternal Love: Romantic Poetry Straight from the Heart

I have been a:


  • H.O.P.E. Mentor, for the Epilepsy Foundation
  • Speaker at different events for schools, organizations, political events
  • Spoke in front of Congress in Washington  for employment discrimination for people with epilepsy
  •  Appeared on four talk shows to discuss epilepsy focusing on the importance of understanding epilepsy, how to help someone having a seizure and giving people with epilepsy encouragement and hope for the future.
  •  Appeared on radio stations discussing epilepsy
  • Appeared on the Michael Dressor Show – Health Radio
  • Appeared in newspapers all over New Jersey such as, The Leader, Belleville Post and the Star Ledger.
  • Received awards in my achievements and certificates in recognition for outstanding efforts in trying to improve society.
  • Active participant in organizations and activities.
  • Published over 400 articles.
  • Author has a dynamic personality and strong public speaking skills.
  • June 26, 2002, I was honored an award by the Epilepsy Foundation of New Jersey for Outstanding Volunteer Award.


My years of writing and journalism instilled me with a writer's discipline and broadening my "fictional possibilities."


I am an outgoing people person who would generally prefer to stay at home with my family and computer, "journalism forces me to meet and talk with people I would never run across otherwise."

From 1996 through present, I was always a freelance journalist by day, but was writing fiction by night. Married to a Chiropractor in 1997, I had my first child the following year and because my epilepsy I was unable to drive, I was at home most of the time.  Writing fiction was a way for me to escape. 


After all my years of non-fiction.  It was this year 2008 when I sat down and began to write my first fiction novel, “Covenant Cove.”

Most of my books are non-fiction and inspirational.  This is my first fictional book.  In is rich with imagery and imagination. I never thought I could be a fictional writer, but my mother-in-law Delores Chillemi kept encouraging me to try it.  I always have a vivid imagination and I could turn any boring story into an exciting story. Delores always read fiction and had great imagination too.  Therefore, we teamed up to write this fictional book together.


My fiction novel has not yet been published yet.  I am in the process of writing it.  I plan to make it a mystery with plenty of action and suspense.


I hope to publish it this year with the intentions of making it a movie.
