About Renee Carter Hall

Renee Carter Hall writes fantasy and soft science fiction, with excursions into dark fantasy, literary, and stories for children and young adults. Talking animals tend to slip into her stories whenever they get a chance, and her work has been influenced by storytellers from a range of media, including Beatrix Potter, Steven Spielberg, Ray Bradbury, Jim Henson, Chuck Jones, Brian Jacques, Gene Roddenberry, and Stephen King. Her short stories have appeared in various print, electronic, and audio publications, as well as several anthologies.

Renee lives in West Virginia with her husband Jeff and their cat Bijoux, where she works by day as a medical transcriptionist, a career that allows her to put her perfectionism to good use. When she isn't writing, reading, or trying to figure out what the doctor is saying, she also enjoys creating visual art, and her other loves include cats (big and small), journals and blank books (since most of her first drafts are handwritten), tea, and new age/world music.

I loved every story in this collection! The characters are well written and the plots are perfectly "logical" even within a fantasy framework.

Stellar in every way, it's a crime that Renee isn't charging for these stories. Each one is vibrant and beautiful, emotional, whimsical and funny. The stories include "Childish Things" about a new father visited by his childhood imaginary friend when his newborn daughter is struggling in a hospital. "Moon, June, Raccoon", a story about a young woman desperately seeking love and how an attempt at magic brings her a witty raccoon matchmaker. And "Swear Not by the Moon" which examines a father and son relationship and having to deal with the fact that everyone grows old and dies--even werewolves. A fantastic collection everyone should read.

I didn't enjoy all of these stories, though Kris was pretty darn entertaining. I especially liked the imaginary friend story. The cartoon character one...freaked me out a little as I was (and still) not prepared to think about them that way.

Pretty good though, it was a nice way to spend my evening.
