Short Bio:
Tracy Holczer lives in Southern California with her family, two rats, three cats and one rather fluffy old dog. She has a deep love for the mountains where she grew up so she writes them into her stories. A 2014 Indies Introduce New Voices pick and Indie Next pick, her debut middle grade novel, The Secret Hum of a Daisy, was written in praise of both nature and family, and all that can be found if you’re willing to hunt for treasure. Her second novel, Everything Else in the Universe, takes a trip through the San Francisco Bay Area during the Vietnam war. It’s about a big, crazy-loving Italian family, a life-changing friendship and the healing power of meatballs.

Long Bio:
At eleven years old, Tracy Holczer read Little Women, and decided she wanted to be a writer. Feathered ball-point pen in hand, she wrote short blood-curdling stories and long, angst-ridden poems through the rest of her childhood. When she was a teen, her family moved to Grass Valley, California where she convinced her mother to get her glasses, even though she didn’t need them, so she would look smart. This is where Tracy decided she would be the next John Steinbeck and write about the glory of trees.

When she grew up, she took a few detours and worked as a sales clerk, a credit analyst, and a waitress in a honky-tonk bar. Somewhere in there, single momhood happened, so she added impersonating Santa Claus and Spider Assassin to her list of jobs. Eventually, she ended up in Southern California, married a General Contractor and lived happily ever after where she doesn’t have to sell ties, crunch numbers or wear a long white beard. Instead, Tracy gets to write stories and visit classrooms.

A 2014 Indies Introduce New Voices and Indie Next pick, Tracy’s middle grade debut, The Secret Hum of a Daisy, was published in May, 2014 by G.P. Putnam’s Sons. Her second novel, Everything Else in the Universe, was released by Putnam in June, 2018. Set in the San Francisco Bay Area during the war in Vietnam, the story is about a big, crazy-loving Italian family, a life-changing summer friendship and the healing power of meatballs.
