Denise Brandell Mastrocola

Denise is a Michigander turned Pennsylvanian, who has been writing stories since Elementary School. Denise won an award at the annual Lansing Youth Talent Show, when she was in 10th grade, for a short story entitled Procrastination is Fatal, but didn’t decide on writing as a career until she was 28 years old. While homeschooling her older children, she spent four years working through a course from The Institute of Children’s Literature.

Through the years, Denise’s children have had a variety of health issues, many of which have been linked to various sensitives; having spent more than 20 years researching and trying different things, Denise has a boots-on-the-ground view on healthier living.

Denise currently writes for two blogs and has several books in different stages of completion. She is planning to break ground in e-publishing, and hopes to have her first historical fantasy book, set during the renaissance, ready soon.
