Tracy Madison grew up far more interested in the world of the make believe than the real world right outside her door. Almost from the moment she learned to read, she discovered the magic of books. With Nancy Drew, C.S. Lewis, or J.R.R. Tolkien as her guide, she traveled to different worlds, solved mysteries, and had breathtaking, spine tingling adventures. Then, as a teenager, she picked up one of her mother’s romances, and fell in love all over again. It was around this time she realized she was destined to be a writer.
Getting completely lost in a story is still one of Tracy’s favorite things to do. As an avid reader across many different genres, her to-be-read pile grows at an alarming rate, because no matter how many she has—it’s never quite enough. She’s active in her local RWA chapter, plays a variety of computer games, and is seriously addicted to reality television.
Tracy lives in Northwestern Ohio with her husband, four children, a bear-sized dog, a snobby cat, and a loud-mouthed bird. Her house is often hectic, noisy, and filled to the brim with laugh-out-loud moments. Many of these incidents fire up her imagination to create the interesting, realistic, and intrinsically funny characters that live in her stories.
