the key to my soul. I think it's awesome that we can escape into another dimension with characters. Reading will take you far away from reality."
ReNita A. Burgess is a #1 national best-selling author who refers to herself as a southern belle, but she becomes just about anyone she wants whenever she writes. Writing has always been a passion of hers for as long she can remember; it’s her escape place.
Many find it hard to believe that she has published over 30 books of different genres; horror, romance, inspiration, children’s, suspense... you name it. ReNita has been on both television and radio interviews regarding her collection of books.
ReNita discovered her passion for writing at the age of 8 years old. She was always inspired by authors such as Ann M. Martin, The Babysitters Club and R.L Stine, Goosebumps. While sitting at the back of class, her teacher noticed she wasn’t paying attention to the chalkboard because she was too busy writing stories and staring out the window. Just as the teacher was going to argue with ReNita for ignoring the lesson, she suddenly became impressed as she read ReNita’s stories and poems to the class. The teacher even bragged on ReNita’s writing talent to the other teachers. This encouraged ReNita and made her feel proud.
The teacher made ReNita promise that she would become an author someday. Little did she know, the encouragement prompted ReNita to stay true to her dream. It is actual proof that ReNita took the advice and has become the talented author she is today.
When ReNita isn’t busy pounding the keyboard, she’s either working out, watching sitcoms or online shopping. She holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Ashley University; in which she graduated cum laude. She currently resides in South Carolina with her spoiled dog and large family.
