Reni Huang


Reni Huang is a wife and mom living the simple and quiet life by the ocean in southern California. She loves tea and macarons, capturing small moments in photographs, discovering quaint cafes and boutiques, picnicking by the shore, and cozying up to watch her beloved British classics.

One of her greatest pleasures is losing herself completely in a captivating story that reveals the soul and struggle towards realization through a storehouse of richly layered characters, whether in book, film, or series.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started writing really early on. My dad is a pastor, and my mom is a teacher, so we didn't have a lot of money growing up. But we were happy with our stack of scratch paper and box of crayons. My sister and I used to spend hours drawing and writing stories. We'd create entire towns of families, and list their occupations and family members, and draw maps of where they all lived and worked.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in northern California, and went to college in southern California. I've always lived relatively close to the beach, so my stories usually take place somewhere along the coast, where the weather is sunny and nice. I grew up in a tight-knit Christian home, so that definitely influences the topics I'm passionate about in my storytelling.
