Biography

Debut Intrigue author Tracy Montoya is a magazine editor for a non-profit outfit in Washington, D.C., though at present she's telecommuting from her house in Seoul, Korea. She lives with a psychotic cat, a loveable yet daft lhasa apso, and a husband who's turned their home into the Island of Lost/Broken/Strange-Looking Antiques. A member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and the Society of Environmental Journalists, Tracy has written about everything from Booker Prize-winning poet Martin Espada to socially responsible mutual funds to soap opera summits. Her articles have appeared in a variety of publications, such as HOPE, UTNE READER, SATYA, YES!, NATURAL HOME, and NEW YORK NATURALLY. Prior to launching her journalism career, she taught in an under-resourced school in Louisiana through the AmeriCorps Teach for America program. Tracy holds a Master's Degree in English literature from Boston College and a BA in the same from St. Mary's University. When she's not writing, she likes to scuba dive, forget to go to kickboxing class, wallow in bed with a good book, or get out her new guitar with a group of friends and pretend she's Suzanne Vega. She loves to hear from readers – email [email protected] or visit www.tracymontoya.
