TRACY CLARK, a native Chicagoan, is the author of the Cass Raines Chicago Mystery series and the Detective Harriet Foster series. A multi-nominated Anthony, Lefty, Edgar, Macavity, and Shamus Award finalist, Tracy is also the 2020 and 2022 winner of the G.P. Putnam’s Sons Sue Grafton Memorial Award and the 2022 Sara Paretsky Award. She is a member of Crime Writers of Color, Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime and is a Bouchercon National Board member and a board member of the Midwest Mystery Conference. The Cass Raines and Detective Foster series grew out of her desire to see capable, competent, African American females on the page as major players in their own stories. A lifelong South-Sider, Tracy works as an editor in the challenging newspaper business and as a patient, understanding and supportive Chicagoan she roots for the Cubs, the Sox, the Bears, the Blackhawks, the Chicago Sky, and the Chicago Fire with equal enthusiasm. Her next book, FALL, book two in the Harriet Foster series, releases in December 2023.
