About Tracy

Claire CollinsHello! I’m so glad you found me! I’ve been lost in the blog world. I’m Tracy, and I have a couple of books published as Claire Collins under my belt. Okay, they aren’t really under my belt, they’re actually on the bookshelf in the living room.

My novels are Images of Betrayal and Fate and Destiny.

Both are available from Second Wind Publishing.

You can follow me as well as the other authors from Second Wind on our publisher’s  blog. Stop by, leave me a comment, and say “hi”!

I’m on Facebook and I love making new friends.

I’m on Twitter too.

If all of that isn’t enough to make you sick of me. (Or if you are already sick of me) You can email me at Tracy@secondwindpublishing.com.

IOB Images of Betrayal

Tysan Reynolds knows all about betrayal. Her only value in life is to be a weapon on the battleground of her parents’ bitter divorce. Refusing to remain a pawn in their games of revenge, Tysan finds herself living abandoned and alone. While most girls her age are worried about their prom dates, Ty’s biggest worry is how to make enough tips as a waitress to pay her rent. Walker Sandoval walks out of a storm and into her life. Dark, handsome, and mysterious, the photographer begins spending more time at the restaurant when Ty is there. While Ty feels unsure of her place in the world, Walker seems to know just where he belongs. She’s drawn to Walker’s sense of strength and self-assurance. He suddenly appears whenever Ty needs someone tough on her side. The photographs Walker shows Ty both intrigue and terrify her. Pictures should capture a moment in time and preserve it forever, but Walker’s pictures show events that haven’t happened yet. The pictures foretell disaster involving the people Ty loves. When the details of the photos become real life, Ty finds herself in danger along with her friend and co-worker, Sheila. With Sheila’s family standing strong with Ty to learn more about their future, they discover there is more to these pictures than meets the eye. Is their future predetermined? Is Walker Ty’s only hope to save herself and Sheila’s family? When Ty receives a picture of her sister bound and gagged she knows she has to fight to save her sister and herself from the Images of Betrayal.


Discovering Destiny was the last thing Andrew Greer expected. Alone in a desolate cabin, Andrew Greer was perfectly content to wait out the blizzard with his adventurous dog, Shadow, as his only companion. Fate decided differently. When Shadow discovers the unconscious and injured woman, Andrew has no choice but to take her to the safety and warmth of his retreat. Destiny weaves a tale of kidnapping and murder. Is she the witness and victim to the crimes? Or is she really a conspirator getting away with murder? Andrew is determined to protect Destiny and find out the truth. Can he find the real killer before it’s too late? Or has he already found her? Only Fate knows for sure.

    Dear Claire,

    When I lived in Texas and worked as a concierge in this fancy high-rise I met this young lady whose fiance had gone to college with the girl who wrote the book The Devil Wears Prada [I think that bragging about that made her feel a celebrity…]. That was the closest I got to someone who had written a book. Until now! Now I meet you, and we’re not talking about one, but two books. This is cool! 🙂

    Loving your blog!
