I would love to say that I’ve always wanted to be a writer, that I have volumes of journals filled with enchanting stories, but that would be a lie. It’s important to tell the truth on your website, so we’ll stick with the truth.
My name is Tracy Ewens. I was born Tracy Leigh Wildberger. That’s right, when my children have the security question, “What’s your mother’s maiden name?” they get to use that doozie.
I was born in San Francisco, and even though my parents moved when I was a baby, I like the way “I’m from San Francisco” rolls off the tongue. In my mind, it elevates me to cool, sophisticated, able to eat anything I want because I “just have one of those metabolisms.”
Tracy from San Francisco always rocks jeans, and she drinks shots of espresso. Tracy from the Bay area navigates a big city with ease, she can name classical composers upon hearing a few notes, she’s a fabulous dancer, and her closet overflows with items that miraculously fall together every morning into perfect outfits.
Sigh…I love San Francisco Tracy, but honesty must prevail.
Tracy Wildberger was born in San Francisco. She moved around a bit as a child, spent several adolescent years in New York and her teens in Phoenix, Arizona. She went to the University of Arizona but transferred to ASU to earn a degree in Theatre/Acting. Tracy Wildberger married a great guy, and she became Tracy Ewens.
All right, enough with the third person.
I live with said great guy and my three brilliant, talented and ridiculously good looking children (I think that’s how they wanted it written) in New River, Arizona. We have a house on a big piece of beautiful desert where we crack each other up, travel, and occasionally fight in front of the children.
I started writing my blog (www.fromthelaundryroom.com) a few years ago. I talk a lot, and I like writing things down. I enjoy words, and my imagination is. . . relentless, so I decided to write a book.
I know. Boring. No dream or vision on a dark and stormy night but I’m sticking with the honesty shtick.
The “write a book” idea turned into Catalina Kiss, which was published on November 13, 2012, by Avalon Books who were then purchased by Amazon/Montlake.
If you’ve made it this far through my bio, you are a trooper. I will close by saying that I believe television is highly overrated and almost everything worth saying comes from either Anna Quindlen or Robert Fulghum.
Thank you for visiting. Thank you for reading my books. I sincerely hope they take you some place wonderful and you spend time with people you care about.
If romance isn’t your thing, please visit my blog and enjoy the pure insanity that often appears in the laundry room.
