Renee Yancy is a history and archaeology nut who has been living vicariously through historical fiction since she was a young girl.

Now she writes the kind of books she loves to read—stories filled with historical and archaeological detail on every aspect of living in a different time period, interwoven with strong characters and a tale full of pathos and conflict.

When she isn't writing historical fiction or traveling to see the places her characters have lived, she can be found in the wilds of Kentucky with her husband and two rescue mutts named Ellie and Charlie.

So often, it feels like I'm writing in a vacuum, never knowing if my writing is "good enough." I think many authors feel this way. So to read a review like yours means the world! It encourages me to keep going when I want to give up. It makes me want to push ahead and gives me hope. So, really, thank you!(less)

The Test of Gold by Renee Yancy

At long last, my first traditionally-published Gilded Age romance novel, The Test of Gold, releases today. First in the Hearts of Gold series, book one tells the tale of plucky Evangeline Lindenmayer. Here’s the Amazon blurb:
