When life threw Renson lemons, he squeezed them and wrote his first memoir, Is the Coffee Fresh? Drama, dysfunction and daily life at a downtown coffeehouse. What customers do, say and steal. Winning him 2016 Best Non-Fiction LGBTQ Author. 
Being a chef and never thinking he would write a second book, fate stepped in and a voice in his mind said, “Write a book, use Whitney Houston as a guardian angel and call it How Will I Know.”
Sounding fantastically gay and fabulous how could he say no.
