Meet the Author

I was born, raised and still live in sunny south-east Queensland. I love animals, my family and many friends. I feel incredibly blessed to be able to live my dream job and be a full-time author. I've wanted to write for as long as I can remember so this really is my dream come true.I enjoy travel, boxing [watching, no longer participating due to a back injury], yoga, horse-riding and I like to challenge myself to continually learn new things.I have degrees in Ancient History, where I specialised in Egyptology, and Comparative Religions, where I specialised in ancient pagan religions. I incorporate a lot of that into my fantasy work, using old myths and legends and religious practices.My goals are to keep improving my character to be a decent human being and leave some positive footprints behind me. To keep writing and improving my craft, and finally to explore as much of the world as I am able.

    This book uses copyrighted materials without permission, taken from a fantasy setting called Mystara, originally published by TSR, Inc.

    In particular: the map in her book is an almost exact duplicate of the one used in the D&D Game's Expert Set, published in 1983 by TSR, Inc. (now owned by Wizards of the Coast in Renton, WA). Many place and character names from the D&D setting are used in the text of the books in this series (Witchcraft Wars). At least two of the books in this series use cover art taken from existing products apparently without permission either (one from Dragon Magazine #183, and the other from a White Wolf product).

    When the author was contacted about these issues, her response (posted on her public Facebook page, June 13th) was: "No Bruce the work is all original, any similarities are purely coincidental. I'd never even heard of the World of Mystara before you mentioned it. " Aside from copyright infringement, this is shameless plagiarism.

    To potential readers, please do not reward an author who takes credit for the work of others.

    Well worth the money. I will read everything I can that Tracey Alley has published & try to stop & rate them as I go. The hard part is to write this before I get on with the next in this series. Thank you Ms. Aiiey for helping me escape my daily life.

    The Quest Continues

    Ursula's Quest Book Two of the Witchcraft Wars - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat

    "Tell me Slade, do you know much about the legend of the Temple of Life?" "Yes, it's a very old legend. It comes from Kemet I think. Something about the gods building a temple to guard a portal that supposedly led to the realm of the gods. I don't remember all of it but it's nothing more than a legend." "But what if the legend were true?" Slade started to laugh until he saw how serious Nikolai was; he actually believed in the myth. "You may well laugh but I have come across many strange things in my studies. Strange and troubling things," Nikolai said. "About the Temple?" "Yes and no. I believe that outside the legend itself very little has ever been said or is known about the Temple. I have, however, discovered from my research that portals from one dimension to another do actually exist." Slade looked hard at Nikolai, his immediate thought was that the necromancer's brain had been addled from the blow to his head, but he could see that Nikolai clearly believed what he was saying was the truth. "What other dimensions? There is only this world and the realm of the gods," Slade said eventually. "To the sight and understanding of most people that is true but I assure you I have found that we are but one of many different dimensions." "I don't understand. Do you mean other worlds like our own or." Slade trailed off, he didn't even really know how to frame the question.'

    In book one of the Witchcraft Wars, Slade, as well as several others that escaped with him, are traveling in hopes of finding the answer to his dreams where he believes his father High King Erich is talking to him. In his first dream he was told to follow the trunk which turned out to be a human that helped him in his escape. In his second dream his father sends him on a search for the Dragon Clan hopes of finding the Great Dragon.

    Ursula, Slade's sister, is having dreams of her own that she believes are coming from their father. In her dream King Erich tells her to search the ruins for the key. So with the help of Ming, her childhood playmate, as well as three others that join them, she finds herself deep in the Temple looking for the answers and the key. As it turns out, there are three keys that must be found and so far Ursula knows of one while Trunk knows of the second.

    Both brother and sister must complete their mission before the war between the kingdoms gets underway and before the witch known as Shallendara finds the key herself. Shallendra's quest, so it appears, is to use the key to open the portals to the gods and increase her own powers. But, opening the portals will not only destroy the world but Shallendara too will be destroyed.

    As in Book One of the Witchcraft Wars, author Tracey Alley has created a story that holds you spellbound and hoping that someone will find the key soon before all is lost. I'm again anticipating Book Three to see who the holder of the third key turns out to be. And to see if Ursula and Slade are able to save the world from the destruction caused by Shallendara. With author Tracey Alley, anything could happen, good or bad.
