A modern-day Bridget Jones’s Diary-meets-Eat, Pray, Love, Tracy’s debut self-help/relationships book, I Just Haven’t Met You Yet, is an open love letter to her future life partner, detailing the trials and tribulations of dating, sharing with readers the transformative lessons and self-empowerment she learned on her journey to overcome personal struggles (including her PTSD diagnosis and recovery) and find the love of her life.

After a Publishers Weekly Soapbox piece (subsequently reprinted in Ms. Magazine) aired about the cowardice of publishers to take on Tracy’s unflinching, all-too-real story, I Just Haven’t Met You Yet found a home with Skyhorse Publishing and is set to be released in May 2019.
