Sy het haar skoolpad geloop al om die potkleigatslimmighede tot in matriek by die Hoërskool Langenhoven op Riversdal. Daarna het sy gedink sy word wys en by ŉ nuwe potkleigat se wetenskap ingeklouter:
BA graad in Lettere en Wysbegeerte by UPE, Honneurs in Afrikaanse Letterkunde by Stellenbosch se Universiteit. Dit het Dantjie goed ge-trein om met tale te boer: skryf haar in vir ‘n taalnavorsers- en opnemerskursus by Global Recordings Network. Haar oë val op taal- en kultuurnavorsing in Suider-Afrika.

Victoria Pearson lives behind a keyboard somewhere in rural Bedfordshire, attempting to write amidst the chaos being married with three children creates. She has a cat (called Mog) and a dog (that her family refused to let her name Dog) because Aristotle said that to be a balanced person you need a dog to adore you and a cat to ignore you (and because the other cat buggered off without even leaving a note).
She spends most of her time creating new worlds, characters, and religions, so is often found wearing odd socks, with unbrushed hair and a faraway look in her eye, or else scrabbling madly for a pen that works to get the stories all trapped on a page before they run off and get into mischief.

Whether as D. Reneé Bagby or Zenobia Renquist, Reneé lives in her imagination. When not traveling through her fantasy worlds, she can be found in Maryland living with her husband and two cats.
She is an Air Force brat turned Air Force wife, which means she's accustomed to travel and does it whenever possible (so long as she doesn't have to fly). Her favorite pastime is torturing her characters on their way to happily-ever-after for the enjoyment of her readers.
On the few occasions her muse flees the scene of the crime, Reneé likes to read (comics, manga, and romance), go to the movies, play a few levels of whichever puzzle game has hijacked her interest or experiment with a new chain mail weave.
