Denny’s debut novel, WILD WOMEN AND THE BLUES, is coming from Kensington Publishing in January 2021. A three-time RWA Golden Heart® finalist and a 2014 Golden Heart® winner, Denny writes mainstream historical fiction and book reviews for NPRBooks.org. She’s also written historical fiction book reviews for Washington Independent Review of Books and recaps Outlander On Starz for FROLIC. This winter she completed a fellowship at Tin House Winter Workshop.

A devotee of Joss Whedon, she began her writing journey in fan fiction. Her fandoms included Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Buffy/Spike), Angel (the TV series), Leverage, and Being Human (BBC). A member of the Women’s Fiction Writers Association (WFWA), Historical Novel Society (HSN) and Romance Writers of America (RWA), Denny is represented by Nalini Akolekar at Spencerhill Associates and resides in Virginia.
