The Occult Detective’s #LastWrites with… Tracy DeVore
Welcome to the seventeenth installment of LAST WRITES.
The premise is simple. My guests face their final rest, but before Death claims them they are granted a few earthly pleasures, the memories of which will travel with them into the great unknown.
Today’s guest is author and editor Tracy DeVore. Tracy was the founding president of the RWA Chapter, Gothic Romance Writers, Inc. (“GothRom”), and a founding member of Indiana Horror Writers (IHW).
She is the Senior Editor for Belfire Press and has edited for several small publishing companies, along with freelance editing for numerous individual authors.
Tracy lives in Indianapolis with her husband Tim and works for the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
Would have to be round steak slow-cooked (on the stove, not in a crock pot) in its own gravy, the way only my mom could make it. Mashed potatoes (leave a few lumps, please), macaroni & cheese and applesauce with cinnamon sprinkled over it. Not fancy, but it comes with a warm, nostalgic feeling of love and security.
The Dragonriders of Pern by Anne McCaffrey. Totally lost myself in that world and would love to do so again.
I thought, what movie would I be sad to never see again, and the first thing that came to mind was the Man in the Iron Mask.
I first wrote “Sitting” by Cat Stevens, because it’s long been a song I want played at my send-off. But something for me to just sit and listen to one last time? That’s a tough one, there are so many. I haven’t just put the old headphones on, laid back and listened to the full version of Innagadadavida. I think I’d enjoy that.
FIRST PERSON YOU’D LIKE TO MEET ON THE OTHER SIDE
Without a doubt, my sister, Debbie. I see no relief for my grieving in this life, I miss her so much.
