About the Author
Tracy Stefan was born in Seattle, Washington in 1965. She was raised by a fiercely independent and intelligent single mother, Fran Stefan, who bore in her a love of writing. Tracy wrote and delivered the commencement speech for her graduation from Capitol Hill High School in Olympia, WA, and went on to graduate from Evergreen State College in 1987.

After college, Ms. Stefan completed the first-year program at Dell Arte' International in Blue Lake, CA, then collaborated with the late multi-media artist, Will Stephens, to create their business, Dustbusters, which she operated for four years. She is a published photographer and poet, and she donated a large portrait of an Aztec Indian fire dancer to the Suquamish Museum in Washington. Her great-great-great-grandmother on her mother's side was a Suquamish Indian, renamed Sally by the missionaries, and her Indian name is lost to the family.

Presently, Ms. Stefan lives with her lifelong friend, Jon Rasmussen, and their two dogs, Bear and Bandita, in Arcata, CA. They are part of a rockin' blues band called "Stayin' Blue" and can be found on Facebook and Spotify. She enjoys jogging on the beach and adventuring in the redwood forest as much as possible. Life is short, so play hard!

Untamed Spirit is a 234-page hardcover with a retail price of $64.00. The ISBN is 978-1-6453-0673-3. It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For more information, or to request a review copy, please go to our virtual pressroom at or our online bookstore
