Tracy Dawson is a Canadian American actor and writer who began her career at the world-renowned Second City in Toronto. The winner of numerous acting and writing awards, she wrote for and performed as a lead actor on the television series Call Me Fitz starring Jason Priestley, for which she won the Gemini Award and the Canadian Screen Award for Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. Her play, theM & us, was produced by Theatre Passe Muraille in Toronto.

Born in Ottawa, she lives in Los Angeles with her life partner, Isaac, who is a Dog. Let Me Be Frank is her first book.

Let Me Be Frank illuminates with a wry warmth the incredible stories of a diverse group of women from different ethnicities and cultural backgrounds who have defied the patriarchy, refusing to allow men or the status quo to define their lives or break their spirit. An often sardonic and thoroughly impassioned homage to female ingenuity and tenacity, the women profiled in this inspiring anthology broke the rules to reach their goals and refused to take "no" for an answer.
