About the Author

Tracy started writing when her cruel, heartless husband ripped her away from her dream job, shopping for rollercoasters for the UK's leading theme parks, to live in America with a brand new baby and no mates. In a cunning plan to avoid domestic duties and people who didn't understand her Derbyshire accent, she wrote No One Ever Has Sex On A Tuesday. It went on to become a No.1 bestseller and publishing phenomenon. Since then Tracy has written many more novels and been published successfully around the world. She now lives back home in Derbyshire with her husband and children.
