Ren was born in Ontario, Canada and currently lives in London, UK. She has worked as a writer, creative producer and content contributor for games-related IP, and formerly managed comms for a non-profit arts council.
Ren currently works in game dev, while also plotting her next twisty space novel. She graduated with a BA in History before completing a year of grad school in archaeology, indulging her lifelong passion for nerding out about the past just as much as the future. She frequently misses her stop on the underground because she was too busy reading.
Ren is represented by Bridget Smith of JABberwocky Literary.
