At its best, education broadens the way students view the world and their place in it.

About Denise

Education is my idea of a good time. Not the boring kind, focused on staying seated, being quiet and regurgitating facts. No wonder students say school is boring!

No, I'm talking about learning that addresses the whole child, that intrigues, engages and challenges students so much that it awakens a thirst for more knowledge and evokes a sense of pride when they meet the challenge. Throw in creative thinking, a good deal of animated discussion and a dollop of excitement, and you've pretty much got my recipe for education. That's also what my books are all about.

Since my interests are varied, I write on a range of other topics as well, from Christian Living to home décor. And simply because I derive as much pleasure from reading as writing, I’ve combined the two in reviews of books I've enjoyed, which are published on another website. You’ll find links to all of these as you browse here.

Some of my other favorite pursuits and pleasures are listed to your left. Just a slice of a rather extensive list, they're an eclectic mixture that's pretty much "me."

I’m a native New Yorker, transplanted in metro Atlanta for the last two decades. And for now, I’ll keep writing. In between, I'll set aside time to spend with my husband, work in the garden, take in the theater, read, do Zumba, maybe get back to gourmet cooking (see, I told you it was a long list!) . . . and savor a richly blessed life.
