About the Author
Tracey R. Newman began writing short stories as a young girl growing up in Reno, Nevada, but retired her pen when she married. She entered college, eventually divorcing her husband of three years and graduated from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 1998 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and a minor in Anthropology.
After the dreadful terrorist attack in Oklahoma City, Tracey enlisted in the United States Army and graduated from Fort Huachuca, Arizona as a Counterintelligence Agent and was reassigned to the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Fort Campbell, Kentucky where she continued her military career and was promoted to Sergeant in 2002, graduating from PLDC (Primary Leadership Development Course) before being deployed to Iraq to support "Operation: Iraqi Freedom".
During her time at Fort Campbell, Tracey needed a creative outlet and picked up her pen once again and created "Illusion, Through the Never Series, Book I". Tracey was honorably discharged in 2003 and returned to her home in Southern Nevada.
After taking some much needed time off, Tracey became a bookseller for Barnes & Noble Booksellers where she continues to share her love of books with customers.
Encouragement from friends eventually convinced her to try submitting her novel for publication and Tracey partnered with iUniverse to bring "Illusion" to the reading public.
Tracey is excited to have the opportunity to share her literary vision with people who are as passionate about books and reading as she is.
She resides happily with her family in Henderson, Nevada.
