Hi! Welcome to my site! My name is Tracey. Let me tell you a little about myself. I'm from a small town in Ohio, where I live with my husband and three kids. I work full-time at a local manufacturing plant in the accounting department. I'm also an author. I write under the name Tracey Steinbach and Tracey Michael. I'm published with XoXo Publishing, Siren-Bookstrand and coming soon, Secret Cravings Publishing.
Random Q & A
Q. Where is the most unusual place you have drawn inspiration?
A. I don’t think there are any unusual places that I’ve drawn inspiration. My inspiration comes from music, movies, and other books and dreams.
Q. Have you always been a writer at heart?
A. Writing for me has always been a ‘pipe dream.’ It was something I always wanted to do, but never had the confidence. It took an opportunity from a friend to put myself out there.
Q. How does your family/home life impact on your writing?
A. My family/home life makes it hard to sit down and write when the mood strikes. Someone always needs a ride somewhere or there is laundry to do or supper to make. I also have a full-time job away from the house. I do have a friend that helps out with the supper part, though. Thanks, Jami!
Q. Where do you write?
A. Mostly, I sit on my couch when I write. I have been known to carry my laptop out to the garage and sit in the back of whatever vehicle my husband is working on, though.
Q. What makes a book good for you?
A. If I have tears streaming or laugh out loud, it’s a good book. If I grow attached to the characters, it’s a good book to me. I know it’s a good book when I come to the end and wonder what happened next.
Q. What bugs you about a main character?
A. I like my heroes/heroines strong, smart and with a bit of a smart-ass thrown in. It bugs me if the heroine is wishy-washy or overly needy.
Q. Coffee or tea?
A. Hot coffee or iced tea, but I prefer Diet Dr. Pepper.
Q. Pizza or pasta?
A. Pizza, definitely.
Q. Steak or chicken?
A. Steak, medium rare.
