Welcome to RenéeAnduze.com
Renée began her first novel in the windowsill of a one-bedroom basement apartment her mother cried about and her father rarely saw. She was nine years old. As the steam register clanked, water pipe dripped, and cracked pane howled, she christened her protagonist “Pixie,” bound her pages with Christmas ribbon, and decorated her margins with crayon daisies. She wrote, “Once upon a time,” but stopped to watch the snow swirl up from the gutter and vanish into the gray of the day. Renée began her second novel a few decades later. It has an ending.
