Meet Tracy Krauss, folks. You'll be glad you did.
SDC: A few things about you interested me before we even made plans to do this interview, Tracy. Your love for drama, your style of book writing, and how you might find the time to write, since you are also busy teaching classes at a high school.
Tracy: At the moment I am still ‘recovering’ from my latest drama production which opened March 9 called ‘A Midterm Eve’s Phantasm’. My troupe of young actors has grown to 34 members this year and we just finished four shows to record crowds and rave reviews. I usually write, direct and produce my own material for the troupe, which is a huge commitment in terms of time and energy – this show was six months in the making. Sometimes I wonder if I’m digging an early grave with so much going on in my life, but I love, LOVE, LOVE working with teens and believe that their involvement in theater has such lasting value that I can’t imagine giving it up.
SDC: Tell us about the influence your books and witness have been on your readers and your students.
SDC: How do you weave faith into your stories?
Tracy: So far, redemption has been a very strong and recurring theme in my novels. I suppose you could say it is the central theme.
SDC: How has your publisher helped you with your writing experience?
SDC: How do you receive strength from Christ in a way that greatly intensifies your writing experience?
SDC: Tell us a little about this book that you are hoping to share with us today and that you want to offer up to one of our readers. And if you could ask our viewers anything what would it be?
My question: What is one of the most awkward situations you have ever found yourself in? (I’ve been in lots of awkward situations!)
SDC: Interesting question that should bring some intriguing answers. Thank you so much for being with us here at A Pen for Your Thoughts, Tracy.
READERS: Be sure to answer Tracy's reflective question. I'll be selecting the winner's name at random later in the week.
Congratulations to Linda Strawn of Manton, CA. I know you'll enjoy that book!
