CHRIS RENEE, AUTHOR, RADIO HOST, COLUMNIST: Once a young girl with a wild imagination and a pen. Her mind was the one place where she was free to express herself as she pleased. Nothing was ever off guards within the comfort of her ears. She put words to paper and surprisingly others found pleasure in it as well. This truth is evidenced by the books she has written, The Kiss of Death and Wealthy and Wicked. She learned quickly that she possessed the ability to connect with readers. Drawing from experience, life itself and secret confessions of friends, Chris began penning erotic based novels in junction with capturing the sexual senses of my readers through taut narrative I developed a love for writing. This is a new journey that she is pleased to be on and blessed that she gets to share it with all of you! I am also more than pleased to present Chris Renee to my listening family tonight.
