About the Author
If ever there were truer words - sometimes bright lights come from the darkest places - then it lies at the heart of Tracey Dickson's debut children's story Will Hallam Hop 2 Mercury, which was inspired by the tragic death of her brother. Tracey enjoyed an incredibly close bond with her brother William - he was her best friend and confidant. At 42 he was diagnosed with cancer but lost his valiant battle just four short months later. Reeling in wake of the tragic loss, and under siege by grief, it was only the wonderful, joyous memories of her beloved brother that offered a semblance of relief. Knowing that the pen is mightier than .the sword Tracey wrote to immortalise the joy that William gave to so many. The Will Hallam series is dedicated to Tracey's brother William, who lived every day as an adventure - "Back Yourself!"Back to top
