Shaundale Rénā is an American multi award-winning freelance editor and an Amazon bestselling author. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems from Grambling State University and a certification in Technical Writing from the University of Texas at Arlington. Shaundale is also the author of one published book, Once Broken, Now Blessed (2009), as well as a contributing author for two additional publications that include If Only I Knew Then What I Know Now (2017), which debuted at #16 on Amazon Self-Help/Self-Esteem, and My Story, My Journey: Collateral Beauty (2019). A professional by day and an artist by night, she balances both worlds by watching all things Marvel and DC―hence the persona @StonyRhodes―and celebrates her first novel, Second Time Around, debuting as a 2016 Crystal award-winner for best newcomer on Wattpad.com.
Shaundale has edited professionally for 10 years and is now an accomplished writer and a talented editor. She shares her stories, and her gifts, with readers and writers around the globe—including indie authors, traditional and vanity press publishers, and traditionally published authors, turned indie. It is her distinct honor to have collaborated with the world-renowned bestselling author Queen Afua (Impeccable Listening, City of Wellness Publishing, December 2021), #1 Amazon bestselling author Laila Ibrahim (Scarlet Carnation, Lake Union/Amazon Publishing, February 2022), international author Oludara Adeeyo (Self-Care for Black Women, Adams Media/Simon and Schuster, January 2022), and national Independent Publisher Award winner, Kim Williams (Dear White Woman, Please Come Home, February 2022).
