About H.B. Reneau

Bestselling YA Fantasy Author

H.B. Reneau is an emerging author of YA fantasy and contemporary fiction. Author, medical student, and proud dog mom, H.B. Reneau is known for her character-driven, genre-crossing fiction that draws on her experiences in both medicine and the military. When not writing or at the hospital, she can be found hiking, drinking coffee to excess, and getting lost in new cities.

Like most writers, I was always the kid that loved books, staying up late into the night to finish the latest Harry Potter or Tamora Piece novel. It wasn’t long before I began writing my own stories and sharing them with anyone who would listen. Fast forward 15 years and a pandemic later and I finally got up the courage to put those stories out into the world. Now I'm the author of an entire series of YA Fantasy novels and novellas with no end in sight.

Unlike most authors, I also have a passion for science, medicine, and my military service - all of which have inspired my unique perspective on the world. While maybe not the most typical of journeys to authorship, mine is one that has inspired me to dream big, always keep learning, and try to see the world in a whole new light.

Finally, neither writer nor globe trotting adventurer is complete without their trusty sidekick. For me, that is undoubtedly Rory, my adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who has been with me every step of the way...Authoring, Doctoring, and of course Cavaliering.

So come on people, even if you don't like my writing, follow me for the puppy pics!
