Meet the Author

I have been hooked on fantasy and science fiction since preschool when I watched Star Trek the Original Series with my family on TV. Then came Star Wars at the theater when I was 5, and a few years later, I discovered the joys of reading fantasy with the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings. I quickly moved up to stronger stuff like Conan, and I currently like The Song of Ice and Fire.

The elements I like most about the genres are the high stakes (save the world, overthrow the empire, etc.), the diversity of characters, and how magic or extraordinary technology allows plots to expand in interesting ways. The ability of fantasy and sci fi to include analysis and criticisms of social conditions like religion and politics is especially fascinating as well. When this is done in conventional humdrum fiction, people and readers descend into arguments about whether an opinion is valid or the historical information is accurate instead of assessing the concepts themselves. These interfering issues are not present in the purely metaphorical works that occur sometimes in fantasy and science fiction.

Of course, fantasy and sci fi can just be fun as well. I love a good hero or heroine and villains can be the best of all. And there is something therapeutic about picking up a sword or blaster and solving the problems of the world.

My taste in genre has inevitably married itself to my love of writing. For some reason I am a person capable of writing novels. The act of creating thousands of pages of fiction does not overwhelm me. Making it a good work of fiction is the hard part that requires countless hours of editing and rewriting and lots of daydreaming too.

I have written a four-novel epic fantasy series entitled The Rys Chronicles. The individual novels of the series are: Union of Renegades, The Goddess Queen, Judgment Rising, and The Borderlands of Power. I produce my novels in paperback and ebooks, and readers all over the world have been kind enough to allow me to entertain them.

Currently I am in the midst of writing another fantasy series. I expect this one to be 4 novels as well, and, as of February 2009, I am closing in on completing Book II. This series is still untitled and I won't be publishing it until it is complete. This process allows me to fine tune everything throughout the novels.

When I'm not writing, my other passions include cooking, growing food, reducing my consumption of fossil fuels, and reading.

    2nd Attempt to Review (Fabulous!!!)

    Again we are taken into the realm of Rys, Tabre and Men. This was an excellent conclusion to the 8 book saga. The flipping of Good and Evil again keeps us anxious over who is really on which side. As things become clearer I must confess it is the depth and breath of the characters that kept me glued to this tale. I can say from the very begining (Rys Rising series) I was pulled into their lives, hopes and dreams.
    Ms Falbe thank you again very much I will be looking forward to your next project. I do hope there is more to be said about these wonderful characters.

    Very good finish

    Great finish to the series. Tied in together many of the loose ends so it feels like you get the closure needed. You're left satisfied not needing another book to complete it.

    Book series is very well done and would make a great visual series in the line of "Avatar"

    Simply Outstanding!

    I will ssay without hesatation thhat these books including this one have been of highest quaality that I have read. Tracy has a beautiful way of using words that captivates the reader and keeps them. She has created a world unlule any other I have read of. Not only has she created thhis world, she fills it with discriptions that fill my mind with picgurres. She goes futher by crrating chactrrs that have depth. The good guys have weakneeses and are not always sugar caoted,and yet show the strugle to be better than what the are. The bad guys are,BAD GUYS that as a reader I loathed and could not wait to read of their drmise. Thhis book put a sound excitig finish. I would like to read of is there trouble with thr new empire and neighibors the do not zzKing Shan's freinds and what whith his new qyeen. Again this is outsrtanig writting the easely rivls George R R Martins without the vulgarit , rape, sex that ucludes children and killing off the people that I vare about..WELL DOENN TRACY YOU SHOULD BR PROUD OF YOUR WORK?
