With her two fledged sons rather delinquent in their grandchildren-production duties, Tracy Brooks began to use writing to fill the space in her empty nest. She is a contributor writer for bookallsafaris.com. Together with her husband, she travels in Southern and East Africa, keen to see and experience everything she can before a Zimmer frame clips her wings. Her interests include the environment, travel, reading, the bush and outdoors, food, wine, and gardening. She believes firmly that the joy of writing is better than botox.
