Katie Stacey

Katie Stacey After two years broking futures and options in the City of London, Katie quit her job in 2012 and has since been a bit of a nomad. Her first stop was to run a ski chalet in Morzine, France. Next she followed the British and Irish Lions around Australia in a campervan. From there she moved to Roatan, Honduras to teach scuba diving. All the while she wrote about her adventures in her blog. It was whilst managing a Bushcamp in the Luangwa Valley, Zambia, in the summer of 2014, that Katie finally had the opportunity to write her first book, called “My Amaii”. Based in the place that her father’s family call home, and where she spent the first five years of her life, Katie was inspired by the people and the wildlife she encountered on her return to Africa.

Currently Katie is working on a number of conservation projects with her boyfriend, Luke Massey, a wildlife photographer and cameraman. They have just finished a photography project on urban peregrines in Chicago, and are now on their way to live in Andalusia, Southern Spain, for three months, for an intensive media project on the rare Iberian lynx. Katie also writes children’s books based on her and Luke’s wildlife encounters.

Katie’s writing is influenced by her three passions in life – wildlife, wanderlust and world food, which she documents in her blog www.naturenibbles.com.
