Tracey Ashcroft was born on the 4th of August 1970 in Luton, Bedfordshire to Anthony and Christine Mowles. She is the eldest of two children with her sister being born 5 years later.
At the young age of five, due to her father’s work relocating, her family moved from Luton up to the North West of England to the Wirral where her family still live to this day.
Tracey had a standard education and on leaving school in 1986, she had gained many qualifications in various subjects. However, still very unsure of what she wanted out of life, she enrolled on an apprentice scheme and ended up working for a DIY merchant where she worked for nine years. Wanting to aim higher, she then trained to become a fully qualified NVQ Trainer and Assessor and she gained all of her qualifications within a year.
She met her then husband during her training years and they had two beautiful children, a girl and a boy. Unfortunately, due to pressure and unforeseen circumstances, they divorced some years later and went their own separate ways.
A few years later in 2005, she met her now Fiancé and wanting to start a new life she moved, along with her two children down to Surrey to be with him, where she continues to reside today.
This was to be a major turning point within her life and on opening up her dreams one by one, she embarked on a number of new hobbies such as gardening, woodwork and especially writing, which reshaped her and gave her the confidence and commitment that she has today.
