Joanne Tracey


Hi, I’m Joanne Tracey, and I write stories with happy endings. Is that a spoiler alert? I’m not sure- but sometimes it’s best to know these things up front.

I’ve always been a greedy reader, and dreamed of writing my own books, but somehow corporate work and life got in the way- as these things so often do. I finally released my first book- Baby, It’s You- in May 2015, and my second- Big Girls Don’t Cry- in December 2015.

My books blend my love of travel, food, and new experiences, and are set in some of my favourite places: Melbourne, Bali, The Cotswolds, Queenstown. Essentially, I write the sorts of stories that I like to read, so if you like your love stories spiced with a little travel, a little fun, the occasional daggy pop song, and some seriously sexy men…you’ve come to the right place.

I live in Sydney, Australia, with my husband, my daughter and my cocker spaniel. That’s Kali- pooch- in the pic below. Most of my words are written with her snoring on my feet or on a cushion beside me.

By day I work as a project manager- and write whenever I can grab the time. When I’m not writing or working, I like to walk, cook, and plan my next trip. You can read about my kitchen, pavement and passport adventures on and anyways.

I’m also an astrologer- of the do it yourself variety. What does this mean? It means I don’t gaze into something crystal-like and predict the future, but I do help you make the most of your own potential- sort of like a house renovation, but using the stars instead of paint. If your interested, I blog about it here.
