Tracie Provost grew up all over the US, rarely staying in one place for more than a year. She dreamed of becoming an author but decided that that career path was not secure enough so she got a Ph.D in European History. Despite the odds, that actually was more secure, landing her a job at a small southern college. Tracie never forgot her dream however and began writing again.
Still teaching full time, Tracie divides her time between academic and fiction writing. There is a surprising amount of carry over between the two. In her spare time she reads, watches bad TV on Netflix, and is ruled over by her numerous feline overlords. The common joke is that Tracie writes to keep her cats in good kibble.
