Tracey Lindeman is a longtime freelance journalist whose work has appeared in The Guardian, The Atlantic, Al Jazeera, Maclean’s, The Walrus, the Globe and Mail and many other publications.

When she isn't writing or fighting with the medical system, she can often be found gardening, learning languages, trying out new arts and crafts mediums and techniques, thinking up tattoo ideas, listening to loud music or planning her next trip. She speaks English, French, Spanish and a bit of German (so far).

BLEED is her first book. She is from Montreal and is currently based in western Quebec. For more about Tracey Lindeman and her work, visit
