What Denise loves most about storytelling is that she gets to live two lives at the same time – her own and that of her main character. So, life is never boring.
Her favourite movies include, Les Intouchables, Mean Girls, Legally Blonde, My Cousin Vinny, A Bronx Tale and Toy Story. Her favourite books include Holes by Louis Sachar, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, Veronica Decides to Die by Paulo Coehlo, Never Let me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, and The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas.
Denise believes that we all need story to step back from reality, and that stories make us better, more empathetic people.
