About Tracey S. Phillips
Tracey S. Phillips’ manuscript, Fractured Girl, won a Hugh Holton award in 2018. The unagented debut, BEST KEPT SECRETS was released in 2019, published by Crooked Lane Books.
Her unpublished manuscript, Mother of Secrets, A Morgan Jewell Book, is a finalist for the Claymore award for Best Detective.
Tracey majored in music production and engineering at Berklee College of Music. A serial artist, she still teaches piano lessons and loves to draw. In the summer she grows vegetables and cooks from scratch. At her first Bouchercon she realized her dream of being a panelist and discussed Unusual Ways to Kill (in fiction, of course) with other debut authors. She is also the founder of Blackbird Writers, a group of authors who fly under the mystery umbrella.
She writes romantic thriller under the pen-name Karissa Knight.
