Hi! I’m Tracy Kay
I have been creating and writing stories for as long as I can remember, and I am an avid reader of all genres. I have a Bachelor’s degree in English and a Master’s degree in Secondary Education. I am a native of Pennsylvania living in a small Ontario town with my sexy husband, and two hyper but loveable little dogs. I have an obsession with crystals and all things arcane, enjoy experimenting in the kitchen, and love a deliciously good romance with a side of panty melting kink and heart pounding adventure.
Well, that is the simple quick version of me in a nutshell. I’m so much more than the above little blurb. So here’s a little more.
Let’s talk books: I love them! When I was a child, I was diagnosed with a learning disability. My mother encouraged me to read and read and read. And I did, but I didn’t like it much. Although reading Little House on the Prairie and Black Beauty were fun and interesting, they had no spark for me. I was just reading what I was told to read, topics that were supposed to interest a young girl. In reality, I was more interested in action and science fiction, particularly if the girl saved the day. I was a big fan of the T.V. shows Wonder Woman, Charlie’s Angels, The Bionic Woman, Cagney and Lacy, all women who kick butt. I was also a big fan of Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, Dukes of Hazard, C.H.I.P.S., and Starsky and Hutch. Yeah, all action packed shows with sexy, hunky men, and even a few strong-willed women thrown in the mix. And of course, I was, and still am, a huge fan of Star Wars, lots of action, sexy men and feisty women. So you can just imagine how stories like Anne of Green Gables left me a little bored.
Then it happened. I was eleven and was set loose on the library and told to pick something, anything, I wanted to read. I found my first teen romance and I was hooked. I read everything I could get my hands on and quickly went to Harlequin romance and adult romance. All those stories in my head that were filled with action where the good guys prevailed over the bad morphed into romance stories. Oh don’t worry, my heroines were never damsels in distress, but rather women of grit and action who fought next to their men, even leading the way. I sought out the romance stories that had women who stood up for themselves, and I still do that today.
When I was eleven or twelve, I started writing my first romance story, the first of many. Unfortunately, these stories never got finished or published. Life tends to get in the way, and when I was a girl, I had many interests and focusing on one thing was never my strong suit. I spent a lot of time finding myself. Oh, I always had stories in my head. That’s on a permanent reel and never stops. It’s like music. When I get a tune in my head, it’s hard to banish it. So I let the music and the stories flow.
Like many American girls, I went off to university and stumbled around until I found my passion, literature and writing. Before I knew it, I had a shinny bachelor’s degree in English. After stumbling through several jobs, never finding what was quite right, I ended back at university and gained a Master’s degree in Secondary English Education and ended up teaching English. Nope, teaching was not for me! I left teaching, had several jobs after that in the cement business and became a Reiki Master. Yeah, I know, weird, right?
I met my husband when I was in my thirties in a chat room, the early years of chat rooms. I fell madly in love with him and we became best friends. I married him and moved to Ontario, Canada. My fabulous husband let me follow some of my crazy dreams. I finished my novel Signs of Love and Deliverance, became a Crystal Therapist and Akashic Records Teacher, started an energy healing and spirit guide readings business called Guides of Light, and published Signs of Love and Deliverance. This all took about twelve years to do, all while helping to raise my stepson, working, keeping house, and caring for two dogs. Yeah, life is busy. But now, I get to follow my dream of being an author with no intentions of stopping. Life sure has its ups and downs, but I wouldn’t change a thing!
Here’s a photo of my cute little dogs who keep me company while I write.
