About this author

Denise N. Wheatley has been a lover of reading and writing for as long as she can remember. She is the author of three novels, including "I Wish I Never Met You," published by Simon & Schuster, Inc. Her second and third novels, "Wards of the Women" and "The Road to Bliss," were published in 2011, as was her paranormal novella, "Shadow of a Man." Her short story "Coming Full Circle" was published in two books from the bestselling "Chicken Soup for the Soul" series; "Chicken Soup for the Bride's Soul" and "Chicken Soup for the Soul: Happily Ever After." Denise is currently working on her fourth novel, "When It's All Said and Done," in her hometown of Chicago, Illinois.


I have had so many people ask me how on earth I was able to write a book. Words like overwhelming, daunting, impossible, etc. were often thrown around during these conversations. In all honesty, words like that floated around in my own head as well when the thought of writing a novel first came about.

Many of us have great ideas on what we’d like to write about. But parlaying those ideas into t... Read more of this blog post »

Shadow of a Man (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: Veronica Level has a gift. She can read minds—but only during the intense bouts of danger that have plagued her throughout her life. And it is Drake Lancaster, a mysterious, centuries-old vigilante, transformed into a dark enigmatic shadow by an evil curse, who has always been there to protect her. Despite the perils surrounding their every encounter, neither Veronica nor Drake can deny their desire for one another, especially now that Veronica’s gift has shown her the seductively handsome man hidden behind the shadow’s spell. But just how far will they go to break the curse so they can finally be together, before endangering Veronica’s life?
The Road to Bliss (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: Timber West’s professional life couldn’t be better. Her successful line of bath and body products has finally enabled her to escape the corporate grind and step out on her own. Her personal life, however, is another story. She and her fiancé Brian, who once served as her college professor and mentor, recently called it quits. A heartbroken Timber blames the split on their eighteen year age difference and conflicting plans for the future. To further complicate matters, Brian also happens to be Timber’s best friend’s father. After their breakup, the two enter new, seemingly more compatible relationships. For Timber it’s all bright lights and red carpets when she starts dating a young, burgeoning movie star. But as her new romance develops, not even the exciting flash of paparazzi cameras can blind her to the fact that what seems right may not always be right. In the end, Timber wonders whether she can let go of self-imposed limitations and mend a relationship that perhaps never should have unraveled.
Wards of the Women (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: "Wards of the Women" introduces Violet, Shayne, and Fifi, three well-to-do suburbanites who appear to have it all, despite the turmoil and misery festering beneath the surface in their lives. When Violet reaches her limit, she does what any sensible woman would do: Blackmails a state prison warden into selling them their very own prison inmates. In exchange for their freedom, each prisoner would be at the mercy of his benefactor’s every wish and whim, regardless of how sinister. But never in their wildest dreams did the women imagine the chaos that would ensue from a simple little purchase.
I Wish I Never Met You (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: "I Wish I Never Met You: Dating the Shiftless, Stupid, and Ugly," was published by Simon & Schuster in August 2004. It introduced a vivid but nameless, faceless heroine who chronicles her dating calamities through a series of funny, outrageous, satirical vignettes. The Mr. Wrongs she meets are alternately gross, married, divorced, dishonest, all-out catastrophes. But in spite of her lousy luck with the opposite sex, she forges ahead bravely, imagining each new date as a potential mate and complaining all the way.
