LazLo's Dream Machines
Motorcycle Romance Collection
by Tracey Cramer-Kelly
Working at LazLo’s custom motorcycle shop is more than just a job…
Welcome to LazLo’s Dream Machines, where the motorcycles are hot—and the men are even hotter! Some are just looking for a little romance, some are hiding deep, dark secrets. Come along for the ride...
The biker club Kerry “Mercury” Dawson joined as a teen may have lived life on the dangerous side, but they were the first “family” Kerry ever had. Even with his new job at LazLo’s Dream Machines, the club is still a big part of his life—until the day he crashes a motorcycle he wasn’t supposed to be riding, and wakes up in Lucy’s emergency room.
What Happens in Sturgis
The fact that Vince avoids kissing has never stopped him from getting what he wants from women. But now he’s shared a little too much with his new co-worker, Tori—and she’s made it her personal mission to change his opinion. Falling for each other is NOT in the plan. After all, what happens in Sturgis, stays in Sturgis. Or does it?
Vaughn’s not thrilled when his boss asks him to work on a motocross bike. But what the bike’s owner, Gabby, lacks in height, she makes up for with her fierce competitive spirit—and mind-blowing kisses. Not everyone wants to see her succeed on the track, though, and Vaughn’s repair skills keep falling short. Is Gabby just not cut out for the big time, or is someone determined to get her off the race track permanently?
Shop owner Lazarus "Laz" Lowenstein keeps his past carefully concealed, and for good reason. When a friend calls in a favor, he finds himself perilously close to the life he left behind—and to fledgling reporter, Nora Carlton. Helping Nora research a story is one thing; exploring his desire for the sheltered single mom is a definite no-no. Can Nora restore his faith in people… and love?

Many experiences influence Tracey's writing, and she has been known to undertake unusual endeavors (such as firefighter training and learning to fly a helicopter) just for the sake of the experience. Being an Army-trained combat medic and a "biker chick" for over 30 years has had significant influence in her books, but even “ordinary” events have struck a chord or inspired a character or plot idea.
In 2018 Tracey returned to school to recertify as an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) and currently works at various sporting and music events when she's not processing orders for the family business (Leader Motorcycle) or working at a substance abuse counseling center.
Tracey lives in small-town Minnesota with her husband, two kids, and two cats. They are a true “soccer family” (she even worked as a referee for two years). She enjoys downhill skiing and spending time at the family lake place. She has also owned and operated an MC business, Leader Motorcycle, for 17 years http://www.leadermotorcycle.com/

I don’t believe in “write what you know” (‘cuz I actually don’t know that much!) but in the case of writing about motorcycles and biker characters, it does help to have a genuine love of motorcycles and to have some experience riding them.
In my case, darn near 35 years of experience!
You’d have to blame my father for that. He took me on a few “poker runs” as a pre-teen, and when I expressed an interest in motorcycling, he enrolled me in a Rider Safety course and encouraged me to buy a motorcycle before I was even sixteen (to my mom’s consternation!). I fancied myself a bit of a rebel for riding a motorcycle; I didn’t know a single other female rider back then (thankfully, that has changed over time).
My parents were divorced, and Dad was the “playmate” while Mom did the tough parenting stuff… which is how I ended up at Mount Rushmore (SD) on a Yamaha Enduro 250 just after my sixteenth birthday. I killed the engine in a long line of tourists and couldn’t kick-start the thing. Although I loved the Enduro because it was “my first,” I vowed then and there that my “next bike” would be electric start. Little did I know then that there would be many “next bikes” in my life!

I’ve never been without a motorcycle since then, except for the summer after my son was born, when I didn’t think I’d miss it (boy was I wrong!). Several Hondas and Yamahas, a Harley, a Suzuki, and a Can-Am Spyder. Hubby and I even had a Ural for a while (an old-school sidecar rig); our son was little then and we added a safety harness to the sidecar and roared around on the dirt roads in our semi-rural neighborhood.
We also spent a lot of time with biker friends. Dinner rides, charity rides, etc. So when I starting thinking about writing biker characters, I wanted to create ones that I could actually relate to. Ones that I (and readers) might actually meet and get to know. I hope I succeeded with LAZLO’S DREAM MACHINES; you’ll have to let me know!
