Renee and the Dee LaRue Mysteries Renee is a writer.
It is a good job for her because she can do it from anywhere
and she often does. A few years back she started writing
about a character she named Dee LaRue after her
grandmother. Dee is a detective. The story is set in
Harlem in the 40's (Renee's favorite fashion period).
The Dee character s smart, feisty, sexy, funny, independant
and stylish. She also has a quick wit and fully loaded gun!
Her relationshipwith her mother is stranded and Dee's
love life is not a easything too. Dee bumps into many of
the famous people of that area during the course of her
investigations. Renee really enjoys writing those parts.

staring on her second book. She often pictures herself as
Dee when she writes. She sees herseft as Dee but a
character like her husband is never her love interest in her
stories. He is starting to wonder about that. She prefers to
insert her fantasy men into those roles. Hey she married
but not dead! Renee is imagining Dee's small office. She
has little money or clients for a big office. Her office is
comfortable, functional and (unlike many of the men
who are detectives), clean!
She knew the office needed some pink but not too pink.
Dee has a sweet tooth. There is always something sweet in

she gets some money she will get a bigger office and
