About Rene, the author

Rene image
Fiction and poetry should lull you into a false sense of security before punching you in the throat.

Join me as I torture your inner child in ways you only wish you didn’t enjoy. I don’t shy away from breaking gender stereotypes, playing with identity politics, looking at ethnic conflict, putting mental illness and intellectual disabilities on the map, and just about any other topic generally neglected by popular fiction.

My poetry tends to be more Bukowski without the crassness. I keep it simple but try to smack the comfort out of you.

When I’m not writing, I travel the country in search of small town America gems. I’m a NaNoWriMo cheerleader, a Municipal Liaison, and 7 time participant/winner, and copy editor for a PR firm in the Albuquerque area.
