Meet the Author

I was ten before I realized the cosmos played a terrible joke on me. I was in the wrong century! While everyone else studied computers and listened to rock music, I wrote a history assignment in Egyptian hieroglyphics and spent endless hours designing ball gowns for Marie Antoinette. I taught myself what every true lady must know: how to sew a fine seam (by hand), to embroider skillfully, and to play an instrument (piano, and nothing later than Beethoven, thank you). I did my best to fit in with the rest of modern society, running two property management companies and inventing an electric lock, only to realize happiness for me meant historical research. Now, writing is my time machine and words recreate the vitality of eras where I feel more at home. Not only do I experience the drama of their time, but I do so with indoor plumbing. Enjoy!

Denise lives with her husband on a soon-to-be farm in Northern Arizona along with various cats, chickens and one dog. You can follow their exploits on her blog: Living with the Other Ed.

I find it extremely surprising that 'Lady in White' has so little exposure. Although the story line cannot be classified as fantastic, it does have some nice moments that I find other novels lack and yet those novels have managed to gather more publicity. 'Lady in White' is one of those historical romances. The characters are pleasing and quite fun to read about. The problem is that it does not contain any real mystery to it. It almost appears as if the author had other thoughts in mind for the story and then changed the whole plot as she wrote it. However, the book will be quite enjoyable if you're a romantic fanatic as I am.
