Recharge: Winter Writing Retreat Day 1
What is your name: Traceyann Joseph, but you can call me Tracey.
What do you write: I write YA contemporary fiction, but I do love writing flash fiction when I need inspiration.
How long have you been writing: I've been writing for three years.
What location have you chosen for your retreat: Last summer my aunt and cousins and I stayed at a resort called Camp Shenandoah in Virginia. Though it was crowded in that little cabin it was nice getting away from the city for a few days.
How did you come up with the idea or find inspiration for your WIP: I have so many WIPs I don't know which I want to work on next. I think my strongest contenders are SOUTH OF LONESOME which was inspired by the Delta Blues singer Richard Johnson, IVY OF OUR HEARTS which was inspired by my desire to write something with a bit of magic and lots of romance, and INFECTIONS OF THE HEART which was inspired by another novel I wrote, as well as Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates and When it Happens to You by Molly Ringwald.
All of them have one theme in common: infidelity.
