About Me

My background

I was born in central Massachusetts and also currently reside there with my husband. I hold an undergraduate degree from Westfield State University and an MBA from Anna Maria College. 

My writing roots

I have been a devoted reader of mysteries almost my entire adult life and an avid writer. "Wicked Game of the Hunter" & "Wicked Shadow of the Hunter" are the first novels in a murder mystery trilogy. I'm currently working on the final novel in the trilogy.

My style

I try to look at events, people and places in everyday life to see how they can be weaved into a story. Adding details brings these things to life on a page for readers and helps them be drawn into the book.

Part 2 of the trilling trilogy available on!


Wicked Shadow of the Hunter (Volume 2 of 3)

Danger continues to lurk for Hunter Logan and Emma Sharpeton in this thrilling follow-up to Wicked Game of the Hunter.

A dark shadow lurks around every corner, weaving a tangled web of deception and threats. With the gala fast approaching, the clock is ticking for Hunter and his security guru, Ryan, to find out who’s behind the perilous events taking place.

Having to put their feelings aside, Hunter and Emma must conquer a labyrinth of obstacles in hopes of piecing this puzzle together. And the answers may lie where they least expect, buried deep in the past.

Each step forward brings Emma deeper into the spider’s web. Can Hunter and Ryan protect Emma and solve this suspenseful mystery before it’s too late?


"Another great writing by Tracey Ryan. Love book #2 and will be anticipating reading book # 3, the final book."

"I like the characters and was excited with the introduction of Emma's brother, Robert. The mystery is riveting and I couldn't put the book down. I can't wait for the next one."

"I couldn't put this book down! I was hooked from the first book in the series, Wicked Game of the Hunter, and this second book did not disappoint. I can't wait for the next in the series to find out what happens."

Trilogy Overview


Wicked Game of the Hunter (Volume 1 of 3)

Finally, everything seems to be falling into place for Emma Sharpeton. Her new marketing company has just won the bid for the Boston Children’s Hospital Gala event. Little does she suspect that this good fortune will bring her face-to-face with her past love, Hunter.

After several troubling events, there are hints that their shared past is not quite buried. Emma receives threatening notes, and her office is vandalized by a mysterious stalker. She and Hunter race to put together the pieces, and soon they discover that their fathers once worked together in a secret lab. Hunter’s late father always hated Emma, but how could he be involved this time? 

In this first installment of a thrilling series, everything Emma has is on the line—including her life. And at the final hour, she doesn’t know whom to believe.
