About Tracy Cooper-Posey

Story writer, tale-teller, addicted to chocolate and Irish Breakfast tea. And books, of course.

A new spy series!

Spooks and the intelligence community they work within is one of the hardest subjects to research. Because of the secretive nature of their work, which lingers long after they’ve retired, and for the sake of the security of their country, most spooks not only don’t talk about their work, but often even their families don’t

Guess What Day It Is Today?

Toa Heftiba Today is International Chocolate Day. You should absolute celebrate that!  Preferably with a good book, and a really good cup of tea or coffee (chocolate goes brilliantly with both).

The More Things Change…

  The Romans fought a lot of wars, including a particularly grisly series of wars called the Punic Wars, against Carthage, in North Africa.
