R.E. Chambliss

Biography

R.E. (Renée) Chambliss has loved stories all her life, enjoying a wide variety of genres and styles—from Diana Gabaldon to John Irving to Barbara Kingsolver to Tolkien.

Her first short story was published when she was 10 years old and won the Young Authors Contest in Jack and Jill Magazine.

When her youngest child was 18 months old, Renée started writing every day during nap time eventually producing her first book, Dreaming of Deliverance.

"It was such an amazing experience—getting lost in a story like I've always needed to do, but this time as its author," she says. "I find the process of writing fascinating, compelling, sometimes the most enjoyable thing ever, and often completely frustrating. It's much more difficult than immersing myself in a story someone else has written. But there's nothing more satisfying than being a conduit for fiction. And now that I've discovered that, I'll never stop writing."

In 2009, she began podcasting Dreaming of Deliverance, which led her into a new dimension of story-telling: narration and voice acting. Other writers and producers began to request her narration for their novels and short stories and before long, she was narrating professionally.

These days Renée balances being a wife and mother with writing new books, and recording fiction—both her own and that written by other writers.
