Stacy Padula will be interviewed on live radio by Doug Llewelyn – the host of The People’s Court and creator of Judge Judy. He is interested in hearing about her journey as an author and a business owner. In preparation for the interview, she has reflected on various experiences. Here is a sneak peak at some topics that will be covered:
Can faith and reason co-exist? Every day, teenagers are faced with difficult situations that challenge their faith and moral compass. The Aftermath follows a group of students from Montgomery Lake High School, specifically Jason Davids and Jessie Robins. At age fifteen, Jason appears to have it all together: high grades, popular friends, a beautiful girlfriend, and every drug that promises enjoyment at his disposal. Despite this, there is a persistent emptiness inside his heart. After attempting to fill the void with achievements, relationships, and illicit substances, Jason finds himself drawn to Jessie, a quiet and rather plain girl whom he has never before noticed. He cannot understand the sudden attraction he feels nor the force that is drawing him toward her. How is it possible that she stands for everything he opposes yet possesses the one thing he has been searching for this entire time?

Tonight, I am feeling very thankful and honored to be 1 of the 4 authors selected, out of 5,000, to be featured on the home page of my publisher’s website. To be chosen as a face of the company that has helped so many authors make their dreams come true and to know that the team you work with believes in you/your mission is incredible.
After working closely with teenagers for many years, I saw an urgent need for realistic young adult books. With teenage suicide, drug abuse, and bullying on the rise, I knew something had to be done to help teens realize their worth. Teenagers have far too much value—each and every one of them—to throw themselves into the downward spiral of substance abuse. Through the eyes of a variety of characters, my books share valuable life-lessons that point teenagers towards success and fulfillment. It is my hope that these books will help teenagers overcome the harsh battle between gaining social acceptance and being true to their own convictions.
