I would describe my books as psychological, convoluted domestic dramas. I want you to know my characters and feel that you’ve been to their house and walked in the same landscapes while I slowly unpeel them.

On the beach at beloved Kilnsea, East Riding – the setting in three of my books.

The place I love best- Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. What will be my 5th novel: The Foam of the Sea is set here. The van is our bus-with-a-woodstove in which Phil and I frequently travel.

RIP our beloved Riley. 31/05/2009 – 14/10/2016

    Good luck with your work Tracey – but you don’t need luck in my opinion because you are clearly working hard and the harder you work, the luckier you get as Samuel Goldwyn once pointed out. I wrote three books before I got one published too – and my blog picture looks a lot like yours! My beach is Walney Island in the North West of England, where’s yours?

      Hi Chris,

      My beach is Kilnsea, on the Humber Estuary, East Coast of England. I spent a year living there in my youth and its the setting for two of my novels. My first novel is being considered by two small presses at the moment – I’m keeping my fingers crossed, and as you say, working hard all the time. Thanks for your comment, and I look forward to reading your book.

    Super stuff, Tracy. I’m struggling to build my website right now. Bet yours didn’t take the hours and days it’s taking me! R x

      Thanks for taking the time to comment, Rosalind.

      It’s all a struggle isn’t it? You just need so much time to get all this done. I’m supposed to think about ‘my ideal audience’ and stuff like that. Still it’s great to have support. Best of luck with yours,

      Tracey x

        Yes! Just done my website. Perhaps I can help by reviewing one of yours, or revisiting my previous one? Rosalind x

    Great site Tracey – and I love the backdrop – my summers were spent on east coast beaches like that one, Lisa

      Thanks, Lisa. The beach is Kilnsea, setting for The Last Time We Saw Marion (called Pottersea in the book) I love it there 🙂

      Aha, THANK YOU! (Now I have to come up with 15 more who aren’t already in it 🙂 Getting to work on this now…
