Tracy Million Simmons

Biography

Tracy Million Simmons was first published at age seven when her story, written on sheets of Big Chief Tablet, was taped to the center section of the coat closet in her second grade classroom for all to read. From that point on she has been addicted to words and paper.

She considers four years of work on the yearbook staff the most worthy pursuit of her high school career. After graduating from the University of Kansas with a degree in psychology, Tracy’s first job was to create a series of aircraft maintenance manuals for ORBIS International, a non-profit organization bringing vision to the world through its flying eye hospital and educational programs. She went on to write letters for the organization, successfully acquiring millions of dollars of aircraft parts and medical donations. She also wrote and designed fundraising materials, newsletters and documentation for internal methods of operation and processes for the organization’s administrators and staff.

Tracy eventually embarked on a freelance writing career that included feature articles in national and niche publications, ghostwritten material for busy doctors and dentists who needed a forum for connecting with their patients and sharing their expertise, website content generation for start-ups and established businesses alike, newsletter design, and line editing and rewrite services for self-published authors.

In 2003 she was the recipient of a mini-fellowship in fiction writing from the Kansas Arts Commission. In 2006 she received an honorable mention in the Kansas Voices Contest. She has been an active member of the Kansas Authors Club for more than ten years and is currently the editor of the organization’s yearbook.

Tracy resides in Emporia, Kansas with her husband and three teenagers, all of whom she considers her muses, as well as her favorite people in the world to spend time with. As well as an author, she is the manager of the Emporia Farmers Market.
