Tracy Price-Thompson (born 1963) is a speaker, novelist, and retired United States Army Engineer officer. She is a veteran of the Gulf War. She self-published her first novel, Black Coffee, at the age of 37. A story about an illicit romance between a female officer in the United States Army and a married enlisted man, it was quickly bought by Striver's Row, an imprint of Random House[1] and became a bestseller.[2] She has since published five more novels: Chocolate Sangria,[2] A Woman's Worth,[3] Knockin' Boots, Gather Together In My Name and 1-900-ANYTIME.[4]

"A Woman's Worth" won the 2005 Hurston/Wright Legacy Award for Contemporary Fiction.[5]
