Used to be Renee Travis.

I am a bisexual liberal wife and mom of two little girls and two adorable boys, from Utah . I am a lover of vampires,the morbid and dark, of magic and mythology. I love fairy tale retellings.

I am passionate about writing, women's healthcare and equality. I love bats, cats, death, Halloween and fashion.

I am often found wandering the wilds of Thedas or shopping on the Citadel.

I am a book review blogger as well as an author.

I am a avid reader, mostly YA and horror but I do throw in some of other things every so often.

I don't add just anyone and have no tolerance for trolls.Please answer my question.

I love good snarky tude, humor, sarcasm and to laugh. I also love anything dark, morbid and disturbing.

I really enjoyed this novel. When the reviews I read mentioned it had a Gilmore Girls Meets Juno feel, I knew I had to read it.

This was a great new book from this author. I love her ability to blend the paranormal with other types of fiction. My only complaint is this was a little predictable.

“The heart is a mystical thing. It keeps us alive by pumping blood to every part of our body. It is a strong organ which scientists say has no memory. But the heart is also a thing of great speculation and power; spoken, written, and even put into songs, by many great authors, singers, actors and poets around the world. The heart is supposed to be the center of love, feeling, loneliness and heartbreak.
And it was that organ, that great red Valentine's Day sought-after-object that was at present causing me trouble”
Renee Travis, Rose Blossom

“I don't know how we came to be, I only know that we are beings”
Renee Travis

“They tore out my heart, put it on display, and the whole world looked upon it and laughed.”
Renee Travis

“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
Marilyn Monroe

“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

“Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.”
Lemony Snicket, Horseradish

“I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?”
John Lennon

“The drug of love was no escape, for in its coils lie latent dreams of greatness which awaken when men and women fecundate each other deeply. Something is always born of man and woman lying together and exchanging the essences of their lives. Some seed is always carried and opened in the soil of passion. The fumes of desire are the womb of man's birth and often in the drunkeness of caresses history is made, and science, and philosophy. For a woman, as she sews, cooks, embraces, covers, warms, also dreams that the man taking her will be more than a man, will be the mythological figure of her dreams, the hero, the discoverer, the builder....Unless she is the anonymous whore, no man enters woman with impunity, for where the seed of man and woman mingle, within the drops of blood exchanged, the changes that take place are the same as those of great flowing rivers of inheritance, which carry traits of character from father to son to grandson, traits of character as well as physical traits. Memories of experience are transmitted by the same cells which repeated the design of a nose, a hand, the tone of a voice, the color of an eye. These great flowing rivers of inheritance transmitted traits and carried dreams from port to port until fulfillment, and gave birth to selves never born before....No man and woman know what will be born in the darkness of their intermingling; so much besides children, so many invisible births, exchanges of soul and character, blossoming of unknown selves, liberation of hidden treasures, buried fantasies...”
Anaïs Nin, The Four-Chambered Heart: V3 in Nin's Continuous Novel
