Marc Lacy, the second child and first son of three children born to Walter and the late Julianne White Lacy, is a cum laude mechanical engineering graduate of Alabama A&M University (AAMU). While matriculating through AAMU, he was a starting forward for the Men’s varsity basketball team.
Also when Marc was on “the yard”, he was often sought for various speaking engagements, and he delivered presentations as a means of enhancing student life and morale on campus.
Often referred to as a “left and right brain” type of guy, Marc’s Gemini-esque character is highlighted by the fact that he is a contingency planner/engineer/ logistician by day and a speaker, writer, and producer by night. He is also the CEO of AVO Publishing, LLC, under which his literary works and audio recordings have been published and produced.
Last, but certainly not least, Lacy is disc jockey with AVO Communications, Inc.
While touring the nation, Marc is most noted for his smooth-flowing lyrics and creative mind which are exuded in his eloquently written poetry. On stage, a beast is awakened within as Lacy delivers his often-charged and thought-provoking spoken word performances. By offering a wide range of subject matter in his work, Marc has been able to cover a lot of ground within his craft.
His “versatile” writing and performance (through God’s endless blessings) have played a big factor in his thirteen published literary works (multi-genre), seven produced spoken word CDs, and numerous literary collaborations as a contributor Marc Lacy 322 to multiple anthologies.
Lacy has also been blessed to host/emcee several events over the decades as well as deliver keynote speeches for various causes.
Marc stays connected with his followers via blogging on his Facebook fanpage (Marc Lacy Speaker, Writer, and Producer) as well as through his livestreaming videos (SoapBoxin’) on all social media platforms.
Lacy knows NONE of his endeavors would have been accomplished without the love, blessings, grace, and mercy from God Almighty and the unwavering support of family.

Loves handling business.

The reader may not be ready for all the twists, turns, surprises.

The process doesn’t seem to get any easier regardless of the number of books written. Each story seems to have its own unique set of needs.

By then, I hope to have at least 3 entire trilogies published, of which at least one as a screenplay. On the poetry side of things, perhaps teaching creative writing as an adjunct professor.

I am most definitely a plotter.
