Renee spent her childhood dreaming of being many things when she grew up, including, but not in any particular order:

An archaeologist (she likes history, and at the time, liked to dig);

A marine biologist (she was an avid dolphin lover until age 15);

A botanist (thanks to the 1992 Sean Connery movie Medicine Man);

A rock star (singing into a hairbrush is a requisite for any childhood, isn’t it?);

A writer.

In the end however, only the last of these dreams survived the trials of adulthood to remain a steadfast part of her adult aspirations. After much hemming and hawing, in 2013 she took the plunge and published The Gate, the first in a young adult trilogy.

She still loves history (the photo to the left was taken on a trip to the remarkable Warwi

Kate Atkinson
“The beginning is the word and the end is silence. And in between are all the stories.”
Kate Atkinson, Human Croquet

Terry Pratchett
“Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.”
Terry Pratchett, Reaper Man

Terry Pratchett
“Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.”
Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time

Neil Gaiman
“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.”
Neil Gaiman, Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch

Libba Bray
“And for a moment, I understand that I have friends on this lonely path; that sometimes your place is not something you find, but something you have when you need it.”
Libba Bray, Rebel Angels

You have to find an author on the site and click on their name. When you do a separate page will come up with a button that says "become a fan." After you've added authors you can change what order they are in by going to your profile and hitting "manage." Cheers!

Ryan Louis Hey, how do I become "fans" of authors on here? I notice you have 6 of them...


message 1: by Ryan

Ryan Louis You know, there's another book in common you haven't added yet. :-) I believe it's something about tranny support groups. Hmmm. I found that book the other day. I guess I still need to get it back to you, eh?

And, if I was starting with a Kate Atkinson book, what should it be?
