The Traz is the first novel in a series about the ongoing lives of these characters. I called the series BackTracker–as that is the name Katrina gives to an influential computer programme she develops. BackTracker symbolizes both the power Katrina comes to wield and the way her future intertwines with her past. The BackTracker characters came to me during a very low and lonely time in my life and began telling me their stories. For months they bore the brunt of my sadness and anger and I, in return, shouldered theirs. Together, connected via words and the keyboard, we found our voices. We learned from one another. We discovered that we were strong despite our weaknesses. But best of all, we came to forgive ourselves and those we love. It was not until much later that I decided I wanted other readers to meet Katrina, Shrug, Chad, and Sergeant Kindle. For years thereafter I worked at polishing my writing–elevating the BackTracker stories from a personal therapeutic experience to one that would touch many. Eileen Schuh lives with her husband in the remote northern boreal forests of Alberta, Canada. Drawing inspiration from the wilderness, she creates entire universes populated with fascinating characters doing intriguing things. Schuh recently retired from a life of careers that varied from nurse to journalist to editor to business woman. She remains active in her adopted community of St. Paul and basks in the love and loyalty of family, friends and fans–virtual, imaginary,and real ones. Schuh is also the author of the Adult SciFi novella, SCHRÖDINGER’S CAT. THE TRAZ is her first published book in The BackTracker series. She’s excited about the upcoming release of FATAL ERROR, the second in the series. “One tiny mistake, and someone’s dead.” Amazon purchase link for THE TRAZ http://www.amazon.com/The-Traz-Book-BackTracker-Series/dp/0986938823/ref=la_B005C1ZHZU_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1345337186&sr=1-1 If THE TRAZ is not available on the shelves of your local library and/or bookstore, you can ask to have them ordered in for you.
