Tracy Kasaboski

Tracy Kasaboski

Tracy Kasaboski was born in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, but grew up in the town of Deep River, Ontario. She has been a writer since the age of five, around the same time her mother bought her a plastic typewriter. She is the co-author of two books, The Occupied Garden, the story of her grandparents' experiences in Nazi occupied Holland, and The Cowkeeper's Wish, a family memoir that spans 100 years and recounts a tale of poverty, war, heartbreak and love. Both books were written with her sister, novelist Kristen den Hartog. 

Tracy writes in the small community of Laurentian Hills in the beautiful Ottawa Valley. She is currently at work on a novel set in England in the 1920s, about an earnest fellow who transforms his unhappy life with an adventurous and prolonged ride on a 1917 motorcycle.
