Tracy Cross

Tracy Cross is the author of the acclaimed Rootwork series from Dark Hart Books. She creates strong female characters to debunk the stereotype that women should be seen and not heard. Her protagonists are strong, Black women, that any reader can see and support. She describes her writing as “exciting stories with breadcrumbs” that lead the reader to an unexpected yet rewarding ending.

Tracy has been the recipient of the Horror Writer’s Association
Scholarship from Hell in 2022, a grant from the Ladies of Horror Fiction, the 2019 New Voices Fellowship from the Emerging Writers Festival and participated in a Residency with Under the Volcano in Mexico. She lives in Washington, D.C., is an active member of the HWA, and is a huge Prince fan.
