I am a Jill-of-all-trades; I love to experience and learn about a large variety of passions. Growing up I never really fit into a single box, or standard label. Now in my forties I have embraced my desire to do all the things I am passionate about instead of picking just one.
Enter Tracy Thillmann - Editor, Mentor, Author.
I love to see other people's worlds come to life, and thus my foray into editing. To help make others' stories the best they can be.
I have had the wonderful opportunity to teach about subjects I have had a personal connection with, and want to impart that experience and knowledge in a way that helps others develop their own skills and confidence. As a writing mentor, I encourage writers to bring their stories to life and hone their skills through encouragement and guidance.
Growing up as an avid reader, I have always been enchanted with the written word. There is a joy in building new worlds and characters, and seeing where the story would take them.
I have been an active member/moderator/presenter of the wonderful Creative Academy of Writers for two years, and as of February 2021 I will have completed half of the Editing program at SFU.
