Welcome! My name is Stacey Chillemi and I have written more than 20 books on a wide variety of subjects, from the challenges of living with epilepsy, positive thinking, alternative medicine, health, creative writing, poetry and how to live a healthy, happy and productive life.

My interests include creativity, meaning, of life, purpose, health and my passion alternative medicine. I work with clients as a freelance writer and advisor of health and alternative medicine and provide trainings for improving lives and learning how to move forward toward a happy, healthy and productive life.

I am an advocate for healing the body naturally and maintaining optimal health using herbal supplements, fruits, vegetables and alternative medicine, a way of life that does away with unnecessary medicines and over-the counter drugs that pose a threat to our health in the long-run, and I wrote many articles on health related issues for Neurology Now Magazine.

I am also an advocate for a global paradigm shift from seeking meaning to making meaning. I articulated a new way of coping with obstacles that we encounter in our journey in life and I teach others how to deal with their problems both mentally and physically and show individuals how to move on to live happy and productive lives.

Bio

As one of the non-fiction genre’s most successful authors, Stacey Chillemi enjoys an ever-expanding and tremendously loyal following.

850

My books regularly appear on Amazon’s best-seller lists and have sold more than 60,000 copies. The most recent original paperback, The Complete Herbal Guide: Heal Your Body Naturally and Maintain Optimal Health Using Alternative Medicine, Herbals, Vitamins, Fruits and Vegetables (December 2012) debuted at # 1 on Amazon’s best-seller list and has been rated five stars from numerous readers who purchased the book.

My first published book, Epilepsy You’re Not Alone in 1998, helped millions of people understand and cope with their disorder enabling them to live a happy, healthy and productive life. Since that time, I have published numerous non-fiction and fiction books including The Complete Herbal Guide: A Natural Approach to Healing the Body, Epilepsy and Pregnancy: What Every Woman Should Know, Co-authored by Dr. Blanca Vasques, M.D., Faith, Courage, Wisdom, Strength and Hope, Natural Cures for Common Conditions and The Secrets of Happiness and Success: The Power Of Positive Thinking.

My love affair with non-fiction and with health genre in general, began during my junior year of college when I was faced by numerous obstacles due to my epilepsy disorder. Hoping and praying that I would be able to finish college and not let my epilepsy disorder get the best of me, I decided to research my disorder hoping to find out more about my disorder and ways to cope with it.

Sadly, there were not many books written about epilepsy during that era. The few books written were by doctors and the medical terminology flew right over your head. Determined to find the answers to my questions, “How can I graduate college when I am constantly having seizures?”, “How can I become a success in life and not let epilepsy destroy my hopes and dreams?”, “How do people with epilepsy cope with their disorder?”

I decided to write an article to epilepsy foundation and asked them to publish it. I wanted to learn how others coped with their disorder. I received hundreds of letters from all over the United States and Canada. I decided to use the knowledge I gained to help myself and others by writing a self-help book called, Epilepsy You’re Not Alone. Writing that book changed my life. Letters poured out from readers thanking me for writing the book. I never realized how powerful words could be. My greatest gift was not figuring out how to help myself, it was being able to help others who struggled from the same problem. There is no greater gift in life than the gift of giving.

I graduated college, received an Associate’s Degrees in Business, and then went on to receive a Bachelor Degree in Marketing and Advertising, but in the end, I changed my career choice to journalism. I graduated Richard Stockton College in 1996.

I began writing seriously in 1994, penning the manuscript that would become Epilepsy You’re Not Alone. I held many jobs during those first years as a writer, finally settling in (much to our delight) to write full time in 2000.

I am an active member in my community and I help organizations in New Jersey. I have written features for journals and newspapers. My articles have appeared in dozens of newspapers and magazines in North America and abroad. I won an award from the Epilepsy Foundation of America in 2002 for my help and dedication to people with epilepsy.

Born in 1972, I was born in New York and I live in New Jersey with my husband Michael, and my three children, Michael, Alexis and Anthony. The family pets include two Shih Tzu’s, Rocco and Princess, and two birds Elmo and Tweedy.

When I am not writing, I chase after my three Shih Tzu’s, takes long walks, hit the gym, and goes to all my kids’ football, soccer, wrestling, basketball and cheerleading practices and games.
