Tracy Falbe earned a journalism degree in 2000 from California State University, Chico. While living in Chico, she became very interested in urban agriculture and food preservation. She taught herself home canning and became addicted to the quality of the food and the sense of self reliance. In 2007 she was invited to give a seminar on home canning at the Chico Grange. And then later appeared as a home canning expert on the podcast More Hip Than Hippie.
Falbe was born and raised in Michigan and has returned to her home state. She currently lives in Battle Creek where she grows food in her yard and writes novels.
