Taylor Tracy
is a middle grade and young adult author who also works in theatre administration, social media and adult education. Their books are filled with humor and heart as well as exploring the joys and hopes of queer kids and those struggling with their mental health. Anxious, ace people like them are in almost everything they write. They live in New Jersey with their two mischievous bunnies (Snowflake & Philly) and love everything their home state has to offer: amazing bagels, incredible pizza and beautiful beaches. When they’re not writing, Taylor is probably listening to musicals, baking something delicious or crocheting yet another hat or scarf.
