Rene Averett


Rene Averett blogs regularly on her Skinny Girl Bistro site where she shares information about low carb foods, living a low carb lifestyle and many recipes. Her first cookbook, "Meals for Two" came out in 2015. Both cookbooks are part of Rene's "Low Carb Recipe Magic" series. She lost 142 pounds on a low carb diet and began creating and adjusting recipes to help her enjoy her new lifestyle.

Rene hails from El Paso, Texas many years ago. She has lived in Los Angeles and Las Vegas and has made her home in Reno, Nevada since 1977. The latter part of her career centered on doing technical writing for a large gaming manufacturer and she enjoyed it right up until her retirement. She is now pursuing her career as an author and e-book publisher under Pynhavyn Press. She is a member of the Fiction Writers Group and the High Sierra Writers.

She loves the view of both the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Virginia City Foothills from her house in South Reno that she shares with her companion, a dog, and four cats. She sometimes plays the guitar and sings Celtic and folk music, attempts a bit of gardening, loves to read and write fantasy, suspense romance and paranormal mystery novels.
