    Traci Harding allows her readers to escape to a place we are somehow familiar with.
    She has an ability, that we, her readers seem to be familiar with. We laugh and cry and identify with the esoteric world she builds for us, or maybe just brings to memory somewhere we are familiar with. She has a a power to transport us to a place we want to be , a world we identify with. Traci is obviously a medium of her own ability, to take us on a journey where we can’t wait for the next book and our next adventure. Much love and gratitude to this wonderful woman
