Tracey lives in the west of England and has done so for the last 30 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.. 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 has now been published. New stuff is on the way, and this time she is determined to finish it in less than 8 years. She is doing the final edits to "Barry" in the hope that it will be published October some time, and there are, as you will see, a couple of free short stories on her Smashwords page.
