Denise was born and raised in Blackpool but then lived and worked in Manchester for a number of years where she was drawn to the theatre, comedy clubs and culture scene. She now lives with her husband Jerry and son Rees on the fringe of an old Lancashire mill-town on the western slopes of the South Pennines. After a long career as a Policy Development Manager for a major UK retailer she turned her skills from technical material to writing fiction in 2010.
She uses her unconventional life experiences and love of psychology to create characters and stories to push the boundaries of fiction. Her first two books Temptation and Star Keeper are contemporary literature which attracted full page features in Northern Life and Style Magazines.
“After writing my first two books I was drawn to my darker side and although it was initially an exploration I now find it is where I belong.” Denise is currently working on her next novel.
