STACY B. DAVIDS, Ph.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist and works as a school psychologist. She’s also a former special education teacher. Her inspiration for writing ANNIE'S PLAID SHIRT came from feeling pressure throughout her life to conform to society’s rules about gender. Even as a baby she reportedly yanked pink bows out of her hair. As an adult she says, does, and wears what she wants.
Stacy lives in Miami, Florida. Just a few of her favorite things are cats, chocolate, and of course, plaid shirts. Learn more at www.stacybdavids.com.
