Author's Bio

Renée Thompson's second novel, THE PLUME HUNTER, launched from Torrey House Press in fall 2011. PLUME follows the life of young Fin McFaddin, an Oregon outdoorsman who takes to plume hunting -- killing birds to collect and sell feathers for women's hats -- to support his widowed mother. It also touches on the formation of the nation's first wildlife refuges, and the National Audubon Society. Renee's debut novel, THE BRIDGE AT VALENTINE, appeared in August 2010 and pits a sheep-ranching family against a cattle ranching family in their fight to control the range land. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Larry McMurtry called BRIDGE "very original and very appealing."
