Tracy Alexander's reinvention as a writer came about by chance, and she loves it! She lives in Bristol with her husband and three children. She has tracked down a real-life hacker and now has too much information on this shadowy world. She has a run highly successful workshops and participated in any number of school and bookshop visits for her younger series, Tribe which she wrote under the name T.M. Alexander
A clever, interesting and refreshing read, prepare for your thoughts to be thoroughly provoked. Dan is far too clever for his own good and he is sucked in and down onto the murky, dangerous road of hacking. The author shows how easy it can be to step onto the wrong path and just how difficult it is to try to right a wrong. This certainly isn't a ‘how to hack’ instruction manual, however it is obvious that a considerable amount of research has taken place with some people who really do have the know how. Dan feels normal, feels real and as though he could be your friend or someone you know. Written from Dan’s view point makes this very personal, throughout the novel you feel as though you are right by his side and perhaps surprisingly, also on his side and this makes for a compelling read.
