The 2K International Writers’ Blog Tour – Renee N. Meland

Renee N. Meland

ReneeRenee N. Meland lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and two dogs. Her favorite obsessions are Rome, learning new recipes, and exploring the world around her. She is an avid reader of speculative fiction, and believes that telling stories is the best job in the world.

What is the first piece you remember writing (from childhood or young adulthood)?

I remember writing a fantasy piece, that we used cardboard and wallpaper to make into a book. It was called Yendor (my dad’s name spelled backwards)

What is your favorite aspect of being a writer? Your least favorite?

I get paid to play pretend. Least favorite part? It’s very hard to stand out when there are millions of other books out there.

Do you believe in writer’s block? If so, what is your best tip for beating it? If not, why not?

I believe in it but I don’t usually experience it. It’s more a block of motivation than ideas. Especially in the middle of a third or fourth draft, I’m ready to be done even though the story isn’t ready.

renee bookWhat is your current writing project? What is the most challenging aspect of your current writing project?

I am working on the third installment of The Extraction List Series, titled Leave me Lost. The challenge is I have to make people fall in love on paper, which I’m discovering is very difficult.

What supports you in your writing?

My husband and my parents.

What are you currently reading?

A dystopian called Station Eleven.

Where can our readers find you and your books online?


Kate M. Colby is an author of science fiction, fantasy, and nonfiction. When she is not writing or working, Kate enjoys playing video games, antiquing, and wine tasting. She lives in the United States with her husband and furry children.
