About Andrea Rendon

I hold degrees in Art, and Psychology and live in Ft. worth, Texas. I am retired from the chemical processing industry and can now pursue my real love, writing and books.

Currently, I am producing a 4 part family saga. While the series begins in Switzerland, much of the story later occurs in Central Texas in Hill Country. Currently Strings - Garden of the Gods, and Strings-Atonement is published. The 3rd book, Strings- Common Ground is in production.

Strings strikes close to home and has been a pleasure for me to write. Music, Texas, Ranching, and a World War II debt of conscience come together to form an 80 year saga of moral conflict, personal debt, loss, and triumph over historical and personal odds. The family must confront the mistakes and evils in the past while building a legacy that will live long after they are gone.

Building this family of complex characters and resolving their individual challenges has been a singular pleasure for Me to write, and They feel like family to me now. My family immigrated from Switzerland to America in 1711 and the family has held on to our heritage over the centuries. I have returned to Switzerland several times to visited Kyburgh, the tiny village the family came from. The atmosphere of this beautiful country, the air, the alps, and the people are fixed in my mind. I find it very easy to venture back in my mind and I want to share the beauty and the sense of place that I experience there. I want to share that experience and welcome readers into a very special place.
