For Renee Peters, there’s no place like home.
Unless it’s a whole new world of course…
Thank you so much for dropping by.
Welcome to my blog; a place where I hope to share with you, my readers and fellow Indie authors, the inside scoop on the adventure that is pursuing my lifelong dream of becoming a successful independent author.
My adventure in writing
It’s been quite a journey to this point. I’ve taught English for over twenty-five years and spent the last decade of that exploring writing creatively for a hobby as well. In one such collaborative writing environment, (read online, text based role play), I met and began my ongoing creative relationship with Rae Stilwell, the writer who became my co-author on the World of the Elysians franchise series.
So much of the World that we have built for our storytelling was born from our Fantasy role play roots, but there is a world of difference between writing interactively for a game and writing and publishing novels. It’s been a long but rewarding journey getting to this point, and it’s only just begun! I look forward to you joining me on my adventure.
Embracing magical realism
If the featured images on this page aren’t enough of a hint, my co-author and I write in the historical fantasy genre. While historical romance and fantasy are powerhouse genres in their own right, it’s been quite an adventure charting a course where the two intersect in various popular historical periods.
Sharing my creative vision with the world is the accomplishment of a life long dream, and one that I intend on pursuing for as long as the stories keep coming.
Behind the scenes
You can hop on over to my blog for a peek at the latest adventures on my journey. Or, you can join other fans of the series on our Facebook community page.
So, who is Renee Peters anyway? I’m a desert dweller, married, living and working in the state of Arizona. That’s quite a distance from my Barbados island roots! I’m also the proud mother of a rescue dog, Jerry, Kai, a copper koi betta fish and Starbuck, a 20-year-old African Grey parrot.
I’ll be chatting about life in general, sharing posts about my writing experiences, the Indie publishing and marketing process, and of course all the latest on the new releases for the World of the Elysian franchise series books. I’ll also be using this platform to promote other independent authors who are trying to make their own dreams come true.
Teamwork makes the dream work, and Indies are my family!
See you around I hope! I look forward to hearing from you.
