Beneath the Flames
Gregory Renz

Greg Renz served the citizens of Milwaukee for twenty-eight years as a firefighter. He was involved in a dramatic rescue of two boys from their burning basement bedroom. For this rescue, he received a series of awards, including induction into the Wisconsin Fire and Police Hall of Fame in 2006. Greg 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. How hard could that be? After only ten years of creative writing courses with the University of Wisconsin Continuing Studies program and countless workshops and conferences later, Greg typed The End to his multi-award-winning debut novel, BENEATH THE FLAMES.
