A native of Philadelphia, Renée taught Spanish and French to students in the city’s public school system before embarking upon a writing career. In 1994, her short story, “At the Beauty Parlor,” won first place in a literary contest sponsored by Labyrinth Newspaper. Following that award, two pieces of her short fiction were included in the Canadian LGBT anthologies, “Piece of My Heart” and “Ma-ka: Diasporic Juks.”
“Leave of Absence,” Renée’s first novel, was published in 2005. Her subsequent novels: “Breaking Jaie,” “RE:Building Sasha,” “The Butterfly Moments,” a revised edition of “Leave of Absence,” and “The Rules” were published by Regal Crest Enterprises between 2007 and 2014.
Renée remains committed to writing artistic prose about vibrant multi-ethnic characters, timely social themes, and relationships that involve intrigue, and sometimes mystery. She enjoys working with language and infusing her stories with well-crafted imagery. Always grateful for her readers’ interest and loyalty, Renée appreciates receiving feedback regarding her fiction.
