Anastasia (Stasha) Mills Healy
Stasha is writing "Secret Connecticut: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure" (Reedy Press, 2021). She wrote a celebrity-endorsed YA novel about being the first girl at America's (and Connecticut's) most elite all-girls boarding school to stand up to institutionalized hazing, which she's currently shopping to literary agents. A former editor at Condé Nast Traveler, Fodor's, and Travel Agent, Stasha provides content to travel publications and companies including Lindblad-National Geographic, Time Out, Fodor’s, and Frommer’s. Other recent projects include writing bios of Black professionals for Blacklist100; telling the story of the recently unveiled first statue of real women in Central Park (which received more than 27,000 views on LinkedIn alone); and penning a press release for another writer’s book. As the public relations chair for the Greenwich Pen Women, a group of professional writers, artists, and musicians, Stasha achieves recognition for the creative works of its members.
