About Me

My photo

Tracie Skarbo was motivated to write by her father, who was her biggest supporter. “He was always behind me, rallying me on with my writing. I would always see him with a book in hand. He gave me a great appreciation for the written word, and the power and responsibility that writers have to shape those who read their words. He also taught me to respect nature and to value the beauty within it; my reflections on my environment are just an extension of this.” Skarbo was raised on Vancouver Island and is working on her next two books.

In Shattered Sunlight

Steamy scent and rippled waves
Caress my thoughts into being
Images so real it is like I am living them

Raspberry dessert wine
In tall frosted glasses
While we lay back and watch the stars

White chocolate cheesecake
Kisses shared
Over candle light

Sunlit picnics
By the river shore
A teasing look; skinny dipping

Watching you
Watching me
Like playful animals giving chase

Ducking amongst the forest path
And losing ourselves
In shattered sunlight mosaics…
