|About Traci Slatton
Traci Slatton was born into a Navy family. She grew up in
Great Lakes, IL; Norfolk, VA; Olathe, KS; Millington, TN; and
Groton, CT. She knew at the age of 6 years old, after
reading her first 'big book,' that she wanted to be a novelist.
Traci has published dozens of poems, short stories, and
articles in magazines and literary journals. She greatly
enjoyed researching Edgar Cayce, quantum physics, and
Rupert Sheldrake's morphic fields for PIERCING TIME &
SPACE. For the historical novel IMMORTAL (Slatton's debut
novel, blending alchemy and the supernatural in an historical
novel that sweeps a mysterious young orphan from
Renaissance Florence across nearly two hundred tumultuous
years), she inquired deeply into the art and life of the Italian
Renaissance, a period when thinkers like Pico della
Mirandola, Leonardo da Vinci, and Marsilio Ficino were
engaged in questioning the nature and relationship of
science, art, and the soul.
