I’m Renee. I live in Barbuda, the smaller island in the twin island state of Antigua & Barbuda with my son Noah & my mom Daphne.
Thanks to my mom I developed a love of reading from an early age. I am a self proclaimed nerd & I love science fiction (movies & books) & romance novels. I’ve been an English teacher, tutor & tourism officer.
A couple years ago I attempted to write my first novel. It never got finished, the files are somewhere lost on my hard drive. But now I’ve decided to take that leap again & work on a book. Being a mother to a two year old, time is limited but I have made the commitment to do something I’ve always wanted to do.
The first draft of my first full manuscript is finished. It has gone through a few edits & is currently going through a bit of an overhaul.
Favourite Movies: All the Star Wars movies.
Favourite Author: After discovering her obituary in the NYTimes and buying her books at B&N, Octavia Butler went to the top of the list as my all time favourite author. Her books are amazing. I don’t even have a favourite.
Favourite TV shows: Game of Thrones, True Blood, Vikings, Two Broke Girls, The Big Bang Theory, NCIS
Worst Habit: Pinterest. I’ve been using it to
procrastinate research book ideas & basically anything else I can think of.
WHY I BLOG:
I originally started blogging to document my journey to becoming an author. My posts included stuff I’ve learned along the way, plus updates on my book. I welcome any comments and advice that you may have for an aspiring author.
I recently hit the two year mark since I first started blogging. I’ve discovered that I enjoy blogging and sharing more than just things about writing. One thing I have come to realize since I started and that is I love learning and discovering new things.
My blog will continue to cover topics on writing but I also enjoy sharing the things that make me happy which include books, food & movies.
I hope my blog inspires someone to take a step towards doing something different that they might not have thought they could do before; to step outside your comfort zone.
