Tricia herself is an author of passionate dark fantasy (represented by Agency co-founder Laurie McLean), Assistant Agent working with Laurie McLean, and a project manager for Short Fuse Publishing. She began her writing career as a business reporter at The Detroit News, Investor’s Business Daily, MSN, and The Houston Chronicle. Eventually she transitioned into public relations for Belo Corp. and CBS television, and then game industry relations for The Guildhall at Southern Methodist University.
Diversity in genre fiction is dear to Tricia’s heart.
When not writing, Tricia can be found reading, lifting weights, or geeking out over games, movies, and music. She has a Tom Hiddleston obsession, and she is definitely Team Vader. Her family includes three Great Danes (so far).
