Inspired by Walt Whitman and Carolyn Keefe, author D.G. Gass, from a young age, has always loved to write. It just took 40-years for her to believe in her work enough for it not to find the trash when she finished. Originally from Jeannette, PA, the Yankee transplant, currently resides in Columbia, SC with her husband and daughter, not to mention, three cats that own her.
A veteran of the US Air Force, whose day job is in healthcare IT, the author has a passion for veterans issues, which is the driving force behind her first book, "Ghosts of Arlington" (due to be released Nov 11, 2011). When she's not writing, she can be found curled up with a good book, working on handcrafts, or staring blankly at walls in a catatonic state.
D.G. Gass released her first poetry compilation, "Twilight Ponderings, Midnight Musings" at the beginning of 2011. The compilation is a series of poetry and prose that was born out of loving someone with diagnosed chronic depression.

There is as much beauty in courage as there is courage in beauty.
Denise Gass proves those words undeniably in this collection of poetry. From "Crossing Bridges Best Left Burned" to "I Just Do." Time and time again, barriers of the mind and heart are vaporized by this poet's incisive voice and rock-steady stare into the deepest recesses of the Human Soul.
Free for the asking, worth so much more than the time it takes to read them, gifts such as these poems are rare and wonderful, indeed.
I will wait in seeming patience for the next offering. But beneath that calculated calm will be a growing hunger for more words from this poet's pen.
