Inspired by a teacher's not so subtle push, Ree Vera began writing at the age of twelve and hasn't stopped since. Her love and skill for the romance genre shines through in her dialogue, memorable characters and their stories. Combined with the humor she injects throughout, Ree will have you laughing, crying, and falling in love from the very first page. Though she'll always be a Texas cowgirl at heart and by birth, Ree now resides in the Chicago area, often going by the name Minerva.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading, of course. Haha, yes I read a lot but if I'm not writing I'm spending time with my family and friends. My daughter keeps me on my toes, so my days are never boring. I love watching movies (horror and musicals are my favorites) and often have something playing while writing. I like having background noise.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I tend to go straight for romance and poetry so a I'm always open to suggestions. It keeps my literary palette fresh and exciting.Also, thanks to social sites and blogs, I've met many incredible writers who have not only become some of my favorite authors, but wonderful friends as well.
