|Storyteller Tracey Milliner|
However, her interests also branch into English and Celtic cultures. These different cultures intersect in her storytelling and writing. She has recently developed a children's character "Rastapixie", a mixed-race little girl from a Rastafarian background who travels to the land of the pixies to earn her wings. Tracey hopes the story will develop into a series of children's books. Judging from the writing and the illustrations I've seen we'll soon be seeing and enjoying her books soon.

When Tracey isn't busy writing, she can often be found singing and DJ-ing. Her family is musical and those influences have rubbed off on her-- funk, hip-hop, soul, Soca, African and, of course, reggae are all part of her repertoire. She's also a singer-songwriter too.
