My name is Renee. I have Only Child Syndrome. I cry tears of joy when it rains. I name inanimate objects. I'm hard of hearing and say "Huh?" a lot. I've been a lifelong music maker and songwriter, weaving my feelings into melodies on stage and in the studio, and about a year ago I decided to write a fiction book for young adults. This writing life now has my heart, and you'll find me hermit-ing in my tiny apartment, plunking away at my partially-written novel that I can hopefully share with you soon. When I'm not writing I'm reading or eating or daydreaming, all usually accompanied by a cup of coffee the size of my face (see above). And sometimes I even leave my cave to go on little adventures, because nature is my therapy. Thanks for visiting me!  XO - Renee
