I'm Denise and I was an army brat. Although I haven't lived in Utah my entire life, as of now I have lived here longer than any other place in my life time. I'm going to date myself by telling you that I started reading romances when I was in my very early teens. My mother was hooked on Barbara Cartland and I read what she read. From that I developed a love of Traditional Regencies - my favorite genre to write.
I write for Samhain and currently have eight books out. My first book, The Importance of Almack's, is a Traditional Regency. Five of the others are either a series - the Gypsy Legacy Series - or connected to the series, and all Victorians. They started out as Regencies, but once I finished fleshing out the backstory, they ended up in the Victorian period and required a whole slew of new research. They were fun to write, but I'm back to writing the Regencies I love so much with my Scarred Series (The Scarred Heir, The Scarred Heart). Hopefully, The Scarred Heiress will be finished soon.
