Hi, my name is Tracy. I am a wife, mother of three boys, teacher, librarian, and writer. I love to learn new things, travel, scrapbook, and read & write, of course.
I started out as an elementary teacher in Texas. I was blessed with three boys and the ability to stay home with them and become involved in their schools. When they were older, I went back to school and earned my Masters of Library Science. Again, I was blessed. This time with the wonderful task of opening a new school. I had the privilege of working with PreK through 5th grade students and teachers, and I loved every minute of it. Next on my journey, my husband and I made the difficult decision for me to give up my position so that I could travel with him for his job, which I enjoy immensely. That is when I decided to, once again, pursue my passion for books and writing.
-I was part of writing and winning a $20,000 grant for my school.
-I sold numerous activities and songs to the Education Center, Inc. for publication in their monthly Mailbox magazines.
-I was selected to be a freelance writer for The Education Center, Inc.
I am currently working on fiction and nonfiction picture books and early chapter books.
