Denise Hunter is the award-winning author of 20 novels, including Dancing with Fireflies and Convenient Groom.

Denise lives in Indiana with her husband Kevin and their three sons. In 1996, Denise began her first book, a Christian romance novel, writing while her children napped. Two years later it was published, and she's been writing ever since. Her books often contain a strong romantic element, and her husband Kevin says he provides all her romantic material, but Denise insists a good imagination helps too!

I'm so glad you're enjoying my work. Yes, Mending Places was difficult to write. It's about forgiving the unforgivable. I don't remember what inspired that particular story, but when the idea came to me, I felt I had to write it. My ideas come from many places.

And after almost 30 books, that particular source is running a little low. :)(less)

Denise Hunter, The Convenient Groom
