Tracy Enright

Tracy Enright is a UK-based freelance writer with a special interest in child development, ageing and diversity issues. She is the mother of two small children. She is working hard to instil a love of reading and learning in her children and is pleased at the results but suspects she may have picked up a case of dinosaur fever along the way. She has recently taken the opportunity to go back into education, studying psychology and sociology, believing that the best way to get children to do something is to show them how much fun it is. Tracy has twenty years experience working in human resources and has spent much of her career supporting managers in dealing with some of the trickier problems of managing people. She is a Chartered Member of the Institute of Personnel and Development.
