Biography: Tracey Enerson Wood has always had a writing bug. While working as a Registered Nurse, starting her own Interior Design company, raising two children, and bouncing around the world as a military wife, she indulged in her passion as a playwright, screenwriter and novelist. She has authored magazine columns and other non-fiction, written and directed plays of all lengths, including Grits, Fleas and Carrots, Rocks and Other Hard Places, Alone, and Fog. Her screenplays include Strike Three and Roebling’s Bridge.

Other passions include food and cooking, and honoring military heroes. Her co-authored anthology/cookbook is entitled Homefront Cooking, American Veterans share Recipes, Wit, and Wisdom. All authors’ profits are donated to organizations that support veterans. The anthology Life Hacks for Military Spouses is her latest non-fiction release. Her debut novel, The Engineer’s Wife, historical fiction about the woman who built the Brooklyn Bridge, is an international best seller. Her newest novel, The President’s Wife, tells the amazing story of Edith Bolling Wilson and the sacrifices she made to protect her husband and her country.

A New Jersey native, she now lives with her family in Florida.
