About the Author

Denise was born and raised in California.  She left her heart in San Francisco, but somehow managed to leave her soul in New Orleans.  When she's not creating and cultivating her characters, she enjoys dining on spicy tuna rolls, sharing a bottle of red wine with friends and watching the latest flick (especially scary films).  From time to time this radiant left-handed pirate will even challenge others to a fencing match or two. But, watch out.  This Gemini is determined to win!

Often referencing her favorite quotes, below is Denise's favorite motto by Hans Christian Andersen: 

"Just living is not enough...one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower."
