Chantell Renee is an Urban Fantasy writer catering to the New Adult genre. She is also an artist, musician, hairstylist and podcaster.
She has been writing short stories and poetry since she fell in love with the subject at the young age of twelve. The idea that she could ever write a novel seemed unbelievable, but she has fallen in love with words. What made them so fascinating was the way words created whole worlds; how words inspire physical and emotional experiences for readers and listeners.
“There would be mornings I’d spend an hour writing down my dreams for story ideas. I’d be late to work happily because I was so excited about the idea.”
While many writers focus on the beauty of language, Chantell Renee puts an emphasis on how words can alter a readers persepctive of the world around them. This not only entertains but also creates new experiences for the reader in a way.
Throughout Chantell’s life, she has witnessed and survived many challenges that ultimately privileged her with what most have noted as a unique look at the world.
This has influenced her writing as well as the dark art projects she dreams up. She has gotten into making jewelry with ethically sourced animal bones, acrylics, turning ordinary home decor into goth wall hangings, and all this plus making time to collaborate with author Dicey Grenor on the Sex & Horror Podcast. These two ladies met while doing the Comic Palooza Comic con in Houston. From there it was only a matter of time for the dream team to tackle the world of podcasting. They have recently started their fourth season of the show!
