Wish List:

My wish list for this contest is to be engaged from the beginning of the story. I like unusual characters that don’t always fit in with what the world says. Picture Books with vivid illustrations that can tell the story with or with out words.

Meet Tracey:



Tracey M. Cox is a writer of words and a drawer of pictures. She is an advocate for children’s literacy and enjoys spreading her love of the written word around. Tracey is a member of SCBWI (PAL member) and the South Georgia Writer’s Guild. She is a KidLit TV team member. To help promote literacy in her area, Tracey started the biggest little book festival in South Georgia every year called the Books Love and Taters Book Festival.

Strong, believable characters
Basically anything that pulls me into a story and keeps me there. Make me love your characters and root for them through the situation they face.
