Denise Longrie

Biography

Denise Longrie’s first foray into writing, undertaken at the age of seven, depicted the capture of a remarkably cooperative wild horse and displayed an equally remarkable disregard for the laws of physics. Her world has broadened since then and her respect for the laws of physics has come through experience, such as falling off flesh-and-blood horses.

In college, she studied journalism in the days when students used contraptions called typewriters.

Among her published work are several poems, appearing in small press periodicals. She has a self-published chapbook of poetry, Sotto Voce, and a self-published short story, Always Coming Home in which no one falls off a horse. She edited her mother’s memoires of immigration to the U.S. as teenager. A budding Esperantist, (saluton, nekonata amikoj!), she is also currently working a retelling of the Sigurd/Siegfried myths, titled Siegfried Dragon Slayer.

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
