Ren Benton's talent for perceiving disaster in every situation is most productively applied to tormenting the characters she writes. She began devouring romance novels at an inappropriately young age because she was a voracious reader, the nearest library was far, and a quarter at any yard sale bought a brown paper bag stuffed with Harlequins and Silhouettes. She currently writes contemporary romance in which the protagonists are the greatest obstacle to their own happiness. Visit renbenton.com for book information and new-release notification.

My subconscious will figure out the solution if given enough quiet time alone to contemplate, at which times it's helpful to have a shiny new toy to distract my conscious mind from berating its better half for sitting and staring instead of producing measurable accomplishments.(less)
