Stacy Carlson was Speechwriter to Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson from May 2007 until January 20, 2009. She was the Secretary's silent scribe for all Treasury issues, from taxes to housing to China to the 2008 financial crisis. Despite a long, successful career in business, banking and government, Stacy always wanted to be a writer. In 2006, she said a prayer and decided it was time to be what she wanted. With good luck and a few strong writing samples she landed the job at Treasury. Prior to that, Stacy had been a lender, manager and executive at three national commercial banks and a senior public policy advisor at a major law firm. She was also Director of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's Washington, D.C. office, Western Region Political Director on the 2000 Bush for President campaign, and Staff Director of the Committee on House Administration at the U.S. House of Representatives. Stacy earned an MBA from Stanford University and a B.A. in economics from Cal State Bakersfield. She lives in Alexandria, Virginia. This is her first book.
