. . . there are always tracks. Just not everyone can see them. I hereby offer to help.
Any of you who are writing a scene that tracks can help you with I would be happy to consult. Make tracks part of your clues with my help. For instance, it's snowing. Everyone who doesn't know much about it thinks that the tracks disappear in snow. Not so, the step made in snow packs down the under layer and when the snow settles a line of distinct depressions still show. Only in some rare instances, like really cold thin layer of snow that then gets a deep layer of wet snow on top. . that might make the tracks disappear at least until spring. Another one is in gravel. When someone walks across a gravel parking lot the little stones they step on are pushed down and each of them then have a larger little bed and a shadow all around them. By standing in different spots or manipulating the light you can see the trail. On a paved road you can almost always see tracks if you get down close because there is dust, or lack of dust and walking across the road leaves a trail like a kid on a clean kitchen floor. And dusting out the tracks with a branch is more than lame . . any tracker can follow that huge clue until the person stops brushing and leaves real tracks. SO, contact me if you want to add some real interesting details to your mystery or fiction.
