This was the title of Dena’s first “major” work, submitted at the age of 8 to her second grade teacher. It was the story of--you guessed it--a taco who fought hard and bled tomato juice. Ever since then, she’s had a passion for writing. After paying her dues as a journalist for two different periodicals, she made the leap into freelance writing, landing pieces in such well-known magazines as Family Circle, Reader’s Digest and Woman’s World.

Never one to step away from a challenge, Dena’s next five-year marathon would be her attempt to break into the competitive world of books. Eight titles later (plus appearances in two dozen more), and Dena still has the same love for expressing herself through writing as that little second grader.
