Denise N. Wheatley is a lover of romance, happy endings, and the art of storytelling. She used to cry as a three-year old child when her mother read to her because she so badly wanted to read the books herself! Once she learned, she constantly had her nose in a novel (especially the ones she’d sneak from her mom’s bookshelf).

Denise has been writing for as long as she can remember and draws inspiration from Chicago, the city where she was born and raised, as well as Los Angeles, which is one of her favorite places in the world. She's published several books and novellas with Simon & Schuster, Red Sage Publishing, eXtasy Books and independently. She's also written screenplays and ghostwritten for some of your faves.

Some days I'll spend hours on one paragraph that I just can't get past, and that's okay, because the next day I may produce thousands of words. When I can't seem to get the words out, I'll just write whatever I can and worry about editing and perfecting later. A page with words is better than a blank page. At least I'm making progress and have something to work off of.(less)

A Step-By-Step Process On How To Write, Publish and Promote Your Book!

The number one question I’m constantly asked is, “How on earth did you manage to write a whole book?” I could go the easy route and reply, “Writing is just in my blood. It’s my passion and what I love to do…” While that’s true, book writing isn’t that simple, not to mention my answer wouldn’t be helpful to someone who’s looking for advice on how to pen their own tome.

Shadow of a Man (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Dec 25, 2018 10:50PM
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.

A Naughty Jolly Christmas by Denise Wheatley
"I usually don't care for erotica, because more often than not, it verges into what I call porn and what others call sensuality.

Whatever!

However, in this cae, it was a nice change, and thank you, Ms. Wheatley, for writing a fast-paced short story..." Read more of this review »
