Renee Yancy is a long time 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.

She wants to take you on a journey into the past so fascinating that you can’t put the story down.

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 Day I Confessed Eleven Sins of Sacrilege

Going to Catholic grade school for eight years at St. Amelias in Tonawanda, NY, left me with some indelible memories, like the time I went to confession and told Father Ochs that I had eleven sins of sacrilege on my soul.

ConfessionalI remember there was a stunned silence for a moment. Then he began to question me as to how I had possibly committed that many terrible sins.

This is it how it happened.

I enjoyed this book very much. From a somewhat spoiled boy, taken fortuitously under a rescuer's wing, Nigel grows into a man. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
