Tracy Shapley

Tracy is a freelance copywriter, all around ne’er do well, non-traditional (that's a polite way of saying old) undergraduate student at the University of Iowa, and occasional waterer of plants. Her hobbies include writing fiction, reading fiction, mixing together various flavors of soup, and typing letters to her friends on an old red typewriter that doesn't have a working period so all sentences must end in questions marks or exclamation points? She has read every Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and has a lot of thoughts on them. Her old Iowa farmhouse is shared by her partner Sean, their two cats Dry Bones and Gristle, and the ghost of Kurt Vonnegut.
