Byron W. Lacy was born in Burnet, Texas on March 21, 1950. He is a fourth generation Texan. Byron’s Great Grandfather, George W. Lacy, came to Texas in the early 1850’s. George and two of his business partners donated the granite to build the current Texas state capitol. He also started a dog breed which is now called the Blue Lacy and is the state dog of Texas. 

Byron W. Lacy was first visited by aliens when he was five years old—forever changing his life. He has lectured at the Houston UFO Network about how aliens saved his life and works to help other abductees cope with the phenomenon.

Lacy, who holds degrees in English and art, has exhibited in galleries throughout the United States. He’s worked as a summer camp director, English and art teacher, freelance artist, and an investigator for Texas Child Protective Services. He is the author of the book CHOSEN: CHRONICLES OF AN ALIEN ABDUCTEE, available on

The book details the physical and emotional impact of his experiences, as well as how he deals daily with this knowledge, are all shared in a candid fashion meant to encourage others. It isn't a book of proof—others already do that—but one of hope for fellow abductees trying to find their own way.

There's life out there. Lacy knows it. And your view of reality won't be the same after reading Chosen: Chronicles of an Alien Abductee.
