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.

Amber Tequila

Spicy hip-sway
In front of
Red table tops that
Glitter with covered candle flames
Black-mustached men
With their hunger on display
Watch the heated Spanish women

Red black-laced dresses
Hug hips
While red lips
Pout with concentration

Black stilettos strike the floor
With festive fervor
In time to guitar and drum

Amber Tequila
Flows over tongues
And hearts alight
In the smoky passionate night
