There are few things more important in my writing career than telling a great story, a fun story, and sometimes one that inspires us to be a little better than we are. I hope in reading my books you gained comfort, laughs, or an escape from your every day life. Thank you for spending time with me and my characters as we try to fill pages with laughter, love, and a little adventure – even if it’s a bit over the top!
Tricia Cerrone is a multi-award winning American author. By day she is a Walt Disney Imagineer, and by night, Tricia is a passionate writer and novelist, currently working on The Black Swan Files—a young adult series about a teenage girl who has the makings of a new breed of superhero. Glimmer, the first in the series, introduces the heroine’s origin story, and her quest to find her family and where she belongs. In Glisten, she finds her family, but is unable to prove who she is, and must fight to retain her freedom and protect those she loves even if it means giving up on her dream.
Ms. Cerrone also writes Historical Romance (for new adults, young adults, and anyone who loves epic love!) under the pen name, Trish Albright. Siren’s Song and Siren’s Secret in the Keepers of the Legacy series have collected a number of awards. Her most recent release, The Time Keeper, is a Christmas novella that captures all the action, romance, and snappy dialogue she is known for in her other historicals.
Regardless of what the time or location might be, Tricia’s stories are known for their love of family, loyal friendships, dauntless heroes, and of course…heroines who know how to fight for their dreams.
When not working or writing, Tricia loves exploring the world, discovering old things, learning new things, and most of all having fun with family and friends.
