Tracy became interested in writing and poetry in elementary school. Her favorites included Emily Dickinson and Mark Twain. For Tracy, Dickinson’s poems were “magic” to her ears.

Write your poems, ideas, dreams and desires down. Put pen to paper. Start early, and young. Start living the life you are dreaming about! Believe in yourself, your ideas and the words will flow. Tracy did.
