  1. You have been recommended to me by our good friend Kathleen Rodgers. We are working on a multi-year Veterans’ Project and would like to consider involving you and your book, as well as train us, give a talk, serve on a panel, and perhaps lead a weekend retreat for Veterans. Please respond, as I am writing a proposal to the NEA for funding and it is due in two days.

  2. Tracy, thank you for responding to my msg on FB. So excited to talk to you more about your book and working with student veterans. Along with being a former marine, I have over 15 years working as a Veterans Counselor/professor of Boots to Books, along with starting a nonprofit for assisting student veterans in their transition from military to civilian life/college. Please let me know how I can best talk to you more.
    All my best,

  3. Attended Tracy’s talk at Carteret Writers in Morehead City today. She was a great presenter, even after only 4 hours sleep. I’m looking forward to her online workshop next February.
