Tracy influenced so very many people with her purple pen—so fitting that she didn’t use red—to gently edit and guide members of her critique groups. Before she moved, she gave me her 12-foot blow-up Santa, which is currently waving in the gentle breeze in my front year. What joy it has brought to my family!
The Shadow Hunters Book Club for teens is a dedication to her love of YA books, sci-fi, fantasy, and the paranormal. She would have loved James Patterson and Rick Riodan’s series of YA books and been equally surprised that I made it through R. B. Chesterton’s The Darkling even though it scared the bejeezus out of me!
Thank you for enriching my life and influencing my work. Your star burns brightly.
