The Writescast Network is pleased to announce author and Fire Captain Gregory Lee Renz will be joining host r.r. campbell for an episode later this month.

From the author—

Fire Captain Gregory Lee Renz was involved in a dramatic rescue of two little boys from their burning basement. He received a series of awards for this rescue, including induction into the Wisconsin Fire and Police Hall of Fame in 2006. When he was asked to share the dramatic rescue at several awards banquets, he was moved by the emotional responses he received and was struck by the power of his storytelling.

Gregory has always been an avid reader and thought maybe he could craft a compelling novel if he could learn how to get these stories on the page. Numerous creative writing courses, workshops, and conferences later, he typed The End to this novel, his first, which was inspired by two adorable little girls, around eight and five years of age, who lived across from an inner city firehouse he was stationed at for three years.

Those two girls stayed in his thoughts over the years, demanding he tell their story. They are two of the main characters in the novel. He hopes he did them justice. After serving the citizens of Milwaukee for twenty-eight years as a firefighter, Gregory Lee Renz retired to Lake Mills, Wisconsin with his wife, Paula.


Gregory’s episode on writing from experience will debut on September 20, 2019.
