Denise Gangnes

Denise cut her journalistic teeth in the exciting world of broadcasting at a major Seattle area radio station.  Following this dream took her to Oregon, Florida, and Illinois, finally returning to Seattle for a decent latte and the view of Puget Sound.  After 18 years in marketing for two award-winning Seattle design firms and involvement in wine marketing, Denise attempted, and failed miserably at retirement.  She returned to the writing world at the coaxing of her college chum, Robb Zerr, and currently serves as chief blogger for great-quotes.com and 1-love-quotes.com.  In her spare time, Denise continues to flunk out of a 12-step program for compulsive volunteerism, having served as on the boards of professional and educational committees, as a Presbyterian elder, and charity auction coordinator. She has a passion for murder mysteries, wind chimes, lavender, and crafting homemade liqueursfrom the berries that grow in her orchard.
