Renee Wood has a lifelong interest in history and ecology and spends as much time as she can in the woods. She’s done everything from subsistence farming to construction work to off-bearing and tailing the edger at an old three-man sawmill. She is also an accomplished saxophonist and fronts the After Hours Big Band and the Renee Wood Trio. She lives in the Missouri Ozarks and is currently at work on a fifth Jenny Black Wolf and Curran TaZarin novel.
