If the Minatour had
kicked up his feet
to tunes of Pan flute
and a Man Pepperoni Pizza
perhaps Daedalus and Icarus
would not have laboured the Labyrinth
and all would have been forgiven
- 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.
