Whimsical Children’s Author & Nurturer of Many!

Tracy Bryan 01

Like most authors, I’m a bit of an introvert and I feel most comfortable snuggled up in my desk chair, tapping away on my laptop. This is not to say that I’m not sociable. I lead an abundant and eventful life that is filled with many people that are special to me. I just prefer to spend quiet, reflective times by myself or with my family.


I live in central Florida and just recently moved here from Toronto, Canada.

I have been happily married for 25 roller coaster filled years. My husband is the focus of my life presently- he is my best friend, travel partner and sharer of all things that are important to me.

My kids are grown and beginning their lives, but I see them as much as I can. I am so proud of them and they are my everything!


I have two adopted furry kids too named Jack and Rusty. These whimsical and far too clever Jack Russell Terriers are just that, but they keep me balanced and give great snuggles.

When I’m not writing, reading or out walking my doggies, I can be found doing yoga or creating miniature faerie gardens in my special pink craft studio that my husband created for me. I love movies and like to place actors to the movie they’ve done and other trivia related to all things film and cinema.

Years ago, I went to school and majored in Theatre and English, but my path in life led to family instead. Always a home-body, nurturer of all and dedicated mom, I would change nothing about the accomplishments and mistakes I’ve made so far. I have passed the last three years writing books for kids themed around self-esteem, mental wellness and mindfulness.

Currently I have just released my debut fiction picture book called Put Away Your Phone!


@ 2016 David Barrow

I’m collaborating with an incredibly talented, professional illustrator on this book named David Barrow. David and I have a fantastic creative process and I couldn’t ask for a more extraordinary partner.

I created Put Away Your Phone! based on my perceptions of human nature and the growing concern I have about people and smartphone use in our culture. I’m hoping to spread awareness about this in a subtle way and bring attention to the fact that people need to be more present in their lives, particularly in their connections with other people.

The main character in this book is named Emma and she represents everyone everywhere who has ever been annoyed with people who are always on their phones.


@ 2016 David Barrow

Emma is a little bit of me, a little bit of you.

Hopefully she will inspire this next generation to have more gratitude for their interactions with other people and the natural world around them.

Maybe one day these kids will be more aware of their smartphone use and place more value in their human relationships than in their devices.

  1. I worry about the invasion of technology in our lives all of the time. Such a great premise for a picture book. I love the image of the bear and the girl shrugging, like… “What is going on, people??” LOL Good luck!
