Ren is an SFF writer and writing mentor. She has spent most of the past few years working in game dev while plotting twisty space books. Ren’s debut novel, UNDER FORTUNATE STARS, was published by Solaris in May 2022.


Ren previously worked as a creative producer and managed communications for a non-profit arts council. 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.

You can find Ren on Twitter and Instagram as @voidcricket.
