About the Chicks

Who are the 2 Chicks?

Beth Friese and Karen Miller Tinker are 2 Chicks and a Pen. Beth and Karen write and publish books together, encouraging literacy for readers of all ages. Their first series, Ren & Friends, shares the adventures of a group of sporty, sassy, science-loving girls. Our latest book invites YOU to be the author along with us!

We would love to speak to your group virtually or in person. We also welcome sponsorships and other partnerships to provide our books to young readers and writers who might not otherwise be able to afford them. We hope you'll explore our site for more details about upcoming publications, appearances, and other shenanigans.


Sign up to hear from us about new books, book signings, and how to purchase our awesome books.
