Renee Ryan’s bio:

Renee grew up in a small Florida beach town. To entertain herself during countless hours of “laying-out” she read all the classics. It wasn’t until the summer between her sophomore and junior years at Florida State University that she read her first romance novel. Hooked from page one, she spent hours consuming one book after another while working on the best (and last!) tan of her life.

Two years later, armed with a degree in Economics and Religion, she explored various career opportunities, including stints at a Florida theme park, a modeling agency, and a cosmetic conglomerate. She moved on to teach high school Economics, American Government and Latin while coaching award-winning cheerleading teams. Several years later, with an eclectic cast of characters swimming around in her head, she began seriously pursuing a writing career.

Renee sold her first book, EXTREME MEASURES, to Dorchester Publishing by winning the inaugural New Historical Voice Contest in 2002. She eventually reconciled her writing with her faith and began writing Inspirational Romances in 2006. She sold her first Inspirational manuscript to Love Inspired Historical in December 2006.
When she’s not writing for Love Inspired Historical, Renee works part time as a regional makeup artist for an international cosmetic company. She lives with her husband, two children and one ornery cat in Nebraska.

Book blurb for Hannah’s Beau:

A career on the stage is deemed unseemly for any lady, let alone a preacher’s daughter. But then, actress Hannah Southerland is no ordinary lady. When a foolish elopement threatens her sister Rachel’s reputation, Hannah will risk everything to bring her home. Reverend Beau O’Toole, brother of Rachel’s paramour, agrees to help Hannah find the missing pair, but after that they must separate. Beau’s looking for a traditional wife—which Hannah is not. But could this unconventional woman be his perfect partner—in life and in faith?
