Hi, everyone! I'm Tracy Deebs, author of Tempest Rising, a dark mermaid YA novel that will hit the shelves on May 10, 2011 :) This blog is a work in progress, as I'm not sure exactly what I hope to do with it in the months to come, besides (obviously) talk to you guys. If you want my official bio, it goes something like this:
Tracy Deebscollects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes YA romances that run the gamut from paranormal to contemporary to post-apocalyptic. She and her family make their home in Austin, Texas.
And for all of those who want the unedited version:
Tracy Deebs lives with four men, teaches writing to local college students and spends as much time as she can manage immersed in worlds of her own creation. A true believer that no woman can have too many earrings, shoes, lipsticks or books, she lives in constant fear of being buried under one of her many obsessions ...
Anyway, that's me. For the next couple of months, I'll be updating this blog a couple of times a week with news about my first YA novel, Tempest Rising, fun giveaways and/or contests, and various and assorting musings in general. Have a wonderful weekend!
