Biographical and Professional Information

Tracy Clark works as an editor in Chicago. Her fiction has been published in mystery magazines and anthologies. A native Chicagoan, she has never once put ketchup (God forbid) on a hotdog and she likes her pizza deep, not flat. When she's not editing, reading, writing, living, she's wandering around Chicago's neighborhoods scouting out good places to (figuratively) stash a body.
