Trace Kerr is a lifelong Pacific Northwesterner who never uses an umbrella when it rains.

When she’s not prowling the dusty shelves of some indie bookstore, she can sometimes be heard on Spokane Public Radio as the producer & co-host of the Brain Junk Podcast. 

Trace lives in Spokane with a gardening crazed chemist, one kid who’s still at home, several chickens, three cats, and a darling chocolate lab named, Ruby.

Her first love is writing stories about queer teens and magic. THE NAMES WE TAKE is her first novel.
