Hi there,

MIRAGE is very different than the Light Key Trilogy. It's a YA psychological thriller set in a skydiving drop zone in the Mojave Desert. I think of it as a Sixth Sense vibe in an adrenaline rush setting. The main character, Ryan, is also much more "live out loud" than Cora from the series. I took some chances and broke some rules in MIRAGE. Hope you like it!(less)

Writing scenes out of order is not unusual for me, so if the current scene I'm on is stalling, I'll skip ahead and write a scene I know is coming and trust myself to connect the dots later. Another technique is to write free-hand. Getting away from my computer and the perfectionism it brings up in me, and just writing with a pen and paper, will often free up a creative part of my brain where new ideas flow and I'm not afraid to be messy.(less)

Tracy Clark liked a quote
Legacy of the Heart by Wayne Muller
“Adults who were hurt as children inevitably exhibit a peculiar strength, a profound inner wisdom, and a remarkable creativity and insight. Deep within them - just beneath the wound - lies a profound spiritual vitality, a quiet knowing, a way of perceiving what is beautiful, right, and true. Since their early experiences were so dark and painful, they have spent much of their lives in search of the gentleness, love, and peace they have only imagined in the privacy of their own hearts.”
