About Us



Denise Dearth





As a novelist and songwriter Denise plans to release original songs with each novel.  A member of Broadcast Music Incorporated her songwriting portfolio is linked with Susan Reiner and Mike Casali. Songs in the portfolio showcase a variety of musical styles including country rock, pop, alternative folk and easy listening.

“Music is a sanctuary of self expression, a way to reflect, rejoice, and heal. A boundless inner space like no other and in its creation from one to all, it lives.”

Denise Dearth, Author & Songwriter

Currently I’m recording an audiobook. We’re also working on book two of the Jackie Vaughn Psychic Detective series. The first draft is 70% complete.  Based on a lesbian character living in Indianapolis our goal is to bring awareness to societal issues.

I will always be grateful to John DeChancie, my mentor through the Writer’s Digest Novel Program.  Thanks to his encouragement and guidance I stuck with my writing and published with Wayward Ink Publishing in September of 2015.  Unfortunately, Wayward Ink Publishing is now closed, however we’re actively pursuing a new publisher.

“You have the kind of introspective, inner-directed vision that a writer needs. You have a wonderfully meticulous and comprehensive imagination… You are the stuff that writer’s are made of.”

John DeChancie – Author
