Renate Moore is a wife, mother and entrepreneur.

When Renate and her family relocated from New York to North Carolina she had a difficult time getting acclimated to her new surroundings. She had just ended her career in the corporate world working in the industries of International Education, Wall Street and Real Estate.

While trying to fit into her new environment, Renate decided to pursue her desire to encourage and support literacy by writing children’s books and implementing them into the lives of those who have children who struggle to read.

Her style of writing is humorous with the intention to capture the attention of the reader while teaching them how to deal with life events and challenges. In every story, she tells the reader something positive and uses words to build their vocabulary skills.

Besides being an avid reader, Renate enjoys baking, cooking and gardening. She and her family maintain a healthy living lifestyle that includes cooking and eating healthy foods. Renate feels that you do not have to give up desserts, just as long as they are made with healthful ingredients where decadence and health become one. Using the focus to encourage healthy eating and the love of reading, she decided to create a unique business of providing a Gourmet Bakery and a Children’s Books Store for all to benefit from.

Her baked goods consists of pastries, cakes, cookies and fresh fruit jams that are made from scratch with wholesome, natural, mostly organic ingredients and contains no genetic modified organisms (GMO), artificial sweeteners or preservatives.

Renate’s career also includes being an Empowerment Speaker & Mentor of education. She teaches self-esteem and self-confidence to young girls. She is also an advocate for abused animals. Renate believes in giving back for the greater good of our community. She chose two causes, Education and Abused Animals to share proceeds of sales with.

Some of the charities include: Petsmart, American Humane League, UNCF, Charlotte Humane Society, local school fund raisers.

Renate acquired her Diploma in Writing for children and teenagers from the Institute of Children’s Literature, Redding CT.

LadyRen’s Nook strives to serve as your competent and reliable partner in business. We aim to treat all of our customers with great care and efficient service.

It was so nice to meet Renate Moore at Peek-A-Boo Couture today, July 26, 2014. She was just lovely and I cannot wait to give her autographed books to my niece's two daughters.

I originally came in contact with Renate of LadRen's on an unrelated business matter. My contacts since have been from the vantage point of a satisfied customer. My association with LadyRen's has surpassed my expectations. The service provided has been very efficient, my dealings have been extremely pleasant, and the short bread cookies and thumb-prints are absolutely delicious. I'm not surprised to hear that Renate writes children's books as well as she bakes her "tastee" treats. I'm proud to refer to myself as a loyal, repeat customer.

I bought Renate's book, A Frog in Grandma's Cup, for my granddaughter, Emilia. She is 6 years old and loves to read. She loved the story and was so excited to see Renate and signed it and written Emilia's name with a note in the front.

LadyRen, you've done it again! Thank you so very much for the tastiest pumpkin pies, I've ever eaten. This from me is quite special...because I DO NOT LIKE PUMPKIN PIE, and now I'm a true fan of Pumpkin Pie, even the one with Pecans! LadyRen your tastee treats are delectable! Everyone hurry quick get your holiday Pumpkin Pies, too!

A Frog in Grandma's Cup is a fantastic book for kids. Fun reading. The story is well written and easy to follow. The graphics are awesome and compliments the story. Looking forward to the next one.

Recently I received my copy of 'a frog in grandmas cup'. I sat down with my boys and we read it. Grandma Louise's transition from big city living to retirement in the country is a lesson for people of any age! I may not be a grandma just yet, but her trials and tribulations strongly relate to my personal transition, for you see I am going from mother of two to an empty nester. 'A frog in grandmas cup' is a great lesson for any stage of life, not just for children!

Lady Ren, thank you for the delightful cookies this past weekend. My family and I truly enjoyed them, at our family gathering. You have new fans and can expect more orders from us! I am so glad you create wonderful cookies at such amazing prices! My husband wants more lemon bars and I will let you know when we're ready. Still really sweetened up from the weekend. Again they were a hit & I can't wait to have more. The best of luck to you!

There are many books that family shares with the little ones as they grow and these special books become family favorites that we share with our children's children and on and on. I believe 'A Frog In Grandma's Cup' will be one of these books, too, and so will you when you get your copy and read this delightful story about adopting to a new way of life! The Author, Ms. Renate Moore, my very good friend has done an exceptional job in bringing this story to life for us all. Now, you may not have had a frog in your cup, but certainly, there have been things in your cup that you didn't expect to be there and you made the best of that situation! The illustrations are funny and you'll be amazed at just how they help to tell the story! Get your copy and share with your children, grandchildren, and other special loved ones in your life! A Frog In Grandma's Cup is a wonderful way to share your memories with those you love! Thank you Renate for sharing your memories with us all! Continue success in all of your endeavors!

DELICIOUS! Could not get enough of the Lemon Bars! The Sugar Cookies are spectacular, but the Lemon Bars are heavenly! I would love to make an order by Friday. What's your treat turn around time? I love the taste, and knowing everything is healthier than other sweet treats. Keep it up and I would love to try a "chocolate chip cookie" recipe!
