Follow my journey to becoming a published author


Waters, Nico_webRené Penn is an aspiring author working on a historical, women’s fiction novel titled The Unroyal Princess. It is a comedy-of-manners–think Downtown Abbey meets P.G. Wodehouse–where the corsets are laced and the sarcasm is loose.

René also has half of a rom-com script written, which she imagines should headline Emma Stone and a handsome actor with lots of memes, like Ryan Gosling. But alas, the script must be finished first.

When she’s not writing, she’s at work in a communications department in Washington, DC, or she’s commuting to or from there. She likes to go on walks with her husband, and is pretty good at following recipes. She lives in the Washington, DC and San Diego areas.
