About the Author

Renee Goudeau grew up near where Dangerous Secrets is set, athough in a later year.

But in that part of the country which has strong ties to the Cajun culture, and even today, to the remnants of its French and Spanish history, things are slow to change. Because of that (and a great deal of research), she feels that what she has written is a genuine reflection of the place and time. It's in her blood.

Even though she doesn't speak but a little French, it is common enough in the area that her word inflections and sentence structure may reflect it. Again it's in her blood.

Personally, she's a great-grandmother, a grandmother, and a mother. Her life is now writing. In other words, there's not much to tell. But she does like to talk if you'd like to get in touch. Her contact information is at the end of her book.

Dangerous Secrets is a tantalizing tale of deception and bigotry. I was captivated by the characters and locale of the story. I agree most heartily with the quote the author has chosen for her cover:"It is important to read novels of days gone by, so that we can celebrate how far we have come and contemplate that work we still have to do," Cynthia Bily, Critical Essay on THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF AN EX-COLORED MAN, in Novels for students, Thomson Gale, 2006. I would remind the reader that the story must be read within the context of time and place. While some words will undoubtably be offensive to modern ears, they are appropiate to time and place. Kudos to Goudreau for staying true to these. Goudreau has painted with words a tapestry of the Louisiana bayou that is inviting and compelling.Buy the book, make yourself a cup of tea and allow the author to take you on a journey to yesterday that you won't forget!
