Renee Beauregard Lute is the author of The Exceptional Maggie Chowder (Albert Whitman & Company, October 2020), and the Winicker Wallace series. She lives in a blue house outside of Seattle with her husband, three young children, two cats, and one cockapoo.

Renee writes a lot, reads a lot, and loves exploring Washington State, which is just about her favorite place (next to Disneyland). You can find her making weird faces at her laptop in various coffee shops.
