A native of Los Angeles, Tricia Harding did work in liberal studies at California State University at Los Angeles and received a degree in Organizational Leadership from Azusa Pacific University. She has spent the last ten years as a project manager in various fields including everything from pharmaceutical research to church planning. Her specialty is in making things go from discussion to completion. With a background that includes experience directing several theatrical productions, Harding was prompted to come on board as associate producer of The Fair Trade because of her own lifelong passion for social justice and because of the story's intersection of faith and personal loss. Harding is currently working on her first novel.
