Tracey lives in the west of England and has done so for the last 20 years or so. She started writing to encourage her son to read something other than train magazines- the idea being that he would tell her what would happen next and then she would write it for him, ready to read at bed time. Yes, you're quite right- it never happened. Work shifts got in the way and though some of the stories were added to, there were often months and even years between writing sessions. The unfinished manuscripts were found during a decorating session and determinedly finished over a four year period- four in all. Growned was the first one finished and edited. Others now published are The Angel in Towerhouse Wood and (as Beryl C Jones) a token Romantic adventure called A Foreign Land, which seems to have gone down quite well. Finding Richard is the last of the four and is due out any time soon.It needs further editing and she won't have time to do it til the holidays. And no, her son still hasn't read them- though she has inspired him to start writing fiction himself. Maybe, some day, he'll be able to keep his mum in the lifestyle to which she'd like to become accustomed.
