Raised in Louisiana and Wyoming, Renee Blare started writing poetry in junior high school and that, as they say, was that. After having her son, a desire to attend pharmacy school sent her small family to the University of Wyoming in Laramie, and she’s been counting pills ever since. While writing is her first love—well, after the Lord and her husband—she also likes to fish and hunt as well as pick away on her classical guitar. Nestled against the Black Hills with her husband, crazy dogs and ornery cat, she serves the community of northeastern Wyoming as a pharmacist and pens her Christian stories, keeping them interesting with action and intrigue, of course.
“I’m not a preacher so you won’t see that in my books. What will you see? Real life battles of Christians as they struggle in a rugged world. In addition to the suspense, mystery and romance, you’ll find a strong message of faith and hope woven into all of my stories.”
