Renee Asher Pickup is a mellowed out punk rocker living in Southern California.  Renee writes fiction about bad things happening to flawed people, nonfiction that is critical of the status quo, and truly believes From Dusk Till Dawn changed her life. You can find her blogging at Do Some Damage every Friday, facilitating classes at LitReactor, or on any podcast looking for a host that likes to blab and have a beer. Her novel with Andrez Bergen: Black Sails, Disco Inferno is available now from Open Books.
