About M.R. Fournet

M.R. Fournet Author Photo01.jpg

M.R. Fournet's ties to New Orleans are part of her own origin story. As a kid, she would go fishing in South Louisiana and eat crawfish with her family in Houma. Luckily, her cajun family forgives her Texas accent.

Even though M.R. Fournet grew up in West Texas, she has always been fascinated by the myths and legends of New Orleans. She fell in love with horror as a kid reading books like Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. What better way to pass on those interests along than to write new tales to scare everyone else?


When not writing, she is a professional artist, belly dancer, and autism mom. She now lives in Dallas, Texas with her husband, son, and ungrateful cats. Brick Dust and Bones is her middle grade horror debut.


M.R. Fournet also writes adult and young adult historical and speculative fiction under the name, Michelle Rene. She's won a great number of indie awards for her books. To learn more about Michelle Rene's work, go to her website,
