Renee Carter Hall

Biography

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.
