Tracie attended Rust College in Holly Springs, Mississippi and later Hawkeye Community College, earning associates degrees in corrections and general studies. Her plans are to further her education with hopes of attaining degrees in criminology and social work, with aspirations of working with women in the prison system.
Tracie has enjoyed singing with two local community gospel groups and loves to sing at weddings, funerals, and other social events. Her hobbies include writing, collecting porcelain dolls and elephants with their trunks pointing upwards--a symbol of good luck and prosperity. But the biggest joys in her life are curling up with a good novel, listening to traditional gospel music, working for the betterment of her community, or just spending time with those she loves the most: her family.
Tracie's first self-published novel, Preying Time, was released in December 2004 to rave reviews. Escape from the Garden of Eden is her fourth novel with Many more great stories to come.
