Rena Jones was born in Santa Barbara, California and spent most of her life in the Ojai Valley. She always loved writing. As a teen, she wrote to over 100 pen pals at one time. It's not surprising that English and typing were her favorite classes in school.
Rena began writing for children in 2003 after visiting Glacier National Park in Montana. A little mountain goat inspired her to write a story about him, and her love for writing children's stories began. She now lives in Bigfork, Montana, which is only an hour from Glacier National Park where her first story was written.
Rena is married to Rick – her high school sweetheart – and they have four children and two cats. Rena is a homeschooling mom to her two youngest boys. Her interests include wildlife watching, photography, camping, national parks, kayaking, reading, writing, and music.
