Denise is a Portland, Oregon native who wandered the United States for many years before deciding that The Northwest truly is "home". Now known as the Woman With a Thousand Hats, she's shucked the shame and shared the hilarity of being a woman juggling motherhood, business ownership and writing.

Her memoir, Woman With a Thousand Hats, describes in hilarity her failure of dozens of "real jobs" before settling into becoming an author. Her first big break was something altogether different, a Sci-Fi novel called Adaline that has evolved into a series Adaline's third installment, Curie, is slated to hit bookstores this fall.

It really depends on the story.

Age/Sex/Location: Love is Just a Click Away is based mostly in Seattle, but has some stops in the Portland Metro.

Adaline on the other hand, is in a world called "Adaline" and so there isn't much that is Portland-y about it aside from the high tech that floods out of the silicon forest.

Thank you for the question!(less)

I'm a full-time Mom, I own and run a paintball store, I've got family obligations and I also like to play at being a farmer. If I just can't write, I know there's lots of other things to work on and so I do. Eventually the writing bug finds its way around again.(less)

I am so excited to tell you guys about a series I've been reading! The Starstruck series follows a rather disorganized mess of a girl as she traipses across the multiverse with aliens. Sally gets into SO many interesting situations, and these novels are packed with snark and wit that keep you turning pages and wanting more.



Celestial, Book Four in the series will be released October 9th, and I... Read more of this blog post »

Adaline by Denise Kawaii

Weirdly fascinating story about clones who are cared for by robots in a private commune. Interesting characters and imaginative story."

Adaline by Denise Kawaii
"Amazing!

Great first installment. Can't wait to explore this world further in the sequels. It's a fun mix of cyberpunk and biopunk. A little man vs machine and a little man vs self with regards to clones. "
