Who is Renae Kaye?
An author of both novels and short-stories, Renae Kaye is an award winning, best selling author in the M/M genre. Although her plans are to expand beyond this in the future, at the moment she is happily writing romantic fiction involving gay couples. A supporter of LGBT rights and same-sex marriage, she is a strong Australian voice in fiction who hopes to further understanding and acceptance of queer people through her writing. She began professionally writing in 2013, and plans to write until her arthritic fingers can no longer type.
Renae is a lover and hoarder of books who thinks libraries are devilish places because they make you give the books back. She consumed her first adult romance book at the tender age of thirteen and hasn’t stopped since. After years – and thousands of stories! – of not having book characters do what she wants, she decided she would write her own novel and found the characters still didn’t do what she wanted. It hasn’t stopped her though. She believes that maybe one day the world will create a perfect couple – and it will be the most boring story ever. So until then she is stuck with quirky, snarky and imperfect characters who just want their story told.
Renae lives in Perth, Western Australia and writes in five minute snatches between the demands of two kids, a forbearing husband, too many pets, too much housework and her beloved veggie garden. She is a survivor of being the youngest in a large family and believes that laughter (and a good book) can cure anything.
