Renée Harris Austell, co-author of newly released fast-paced thriller “Royal & St. Louis” named after the iconic street corner in the heart of the French Quarter, will visit New Orleans July 14 to 16 for meet and greets, interviews and readings at the Omni Royal Orleans hotel. “Royal & St. Louis” takes the reader to the streets of Paris, New York, Los Angeles and New Orleans, with pivotal scenes at the historic Omni Royal Orleans and nearby landmarks.
A Louisiana native and graduate of LSU Law School, Harris Austell spent her childhood between the levees of the Mississippi River in New Orleans and the crawfish farms of French-speaking southern Louisiana.
Royal & St. Louis has garnered early critical acclaim and outstanding reviews. Kristin Clark-Taylor, Author and Former White House Communications Strategist, wrote, “Royal & St. Louis is filled to the brim with intrigue and authenticity. It picked me up and plopped me right down into the streets of Paris, New York, L.A., and gritty New Orleans. The ride of a lifetime! My only hope is that Gohsman and Austell don't make us wait too long for the sequel.”
Another reviewer, DeVoyce Stubbs Gray, wrote, “Royal & St. Louis is a fast paced and riveting book. I fell in love with Reilly Love, Euna Mae Perron and Charmaine. They are quintessential New Orleanians.”
Co-author Robin Gohsman stated, “Renée has a certain ‘je ne sais quoi,’ is as unique as New Orleans and is as intriguing as the Cajun culture. Her French Quarter intimacy, international experience and legal expertise are woven into the fabric of Royal & St. Louis in a way that will authentically connect the reader with the wonder and mystery of the story line.”
