About Renee' La Viness

Renee La Viness never wanted to grow up, so she stopped at four feet, eleven inches tall. But, what is a grownup? Height? Age? Wisdom? The ability to reach the gas pedal?

At the age of thirteen, Renee' started her own business as a professional ventriloquist who wrote her own skits, handled her own advertising, and booked her own engagements. In more recent years, she has been published in magazines, newspapers, and anthologies, and is currently publishing some of her short stories that found their way into anthologies.

Renee' lives with her husband in Oklahoma, where they raised their family of boys and now live with a nervous Welsh Corgi and four ornery chickens.

Marcia Carrington reviewed on Jan. 22, 2019

This is a short story that says so much in so few words, but what it expresses is of universal importance. Leaving things too late can have a detrimental effect, especially when it has to do with family and personal relationships, and this story is an exemplar of this. The ending leaves the reader not only surprised but also, expresses the heartbreaking fragility of life.
