Denise R. Stephenson resides in Oceanside, CA, but she has lived in all the remote locales of her first novel, Isolation. Staying inside of boxes, forms, and genres has never been her strength. She's published over 20 academic articles and book chapters, many of which stray from traditional conventions. As a member of Attention Deficit Drama, she has written and produced monologs and short plays. She hopes to one day see on stage, Hibakusha, her most recent play about nuclear disasters. Stephenson is a book artist as well as a writer and has shown her letterpress book "What She Said" in several national shows.

Meh

Interesting characters, good mystery storyline, but uneven writing. I typically enjoy multiple points of view, but they must be deftly handled and these are not always. One chapter in roughly the middle was so dull I almost quit reading. Because i

Memories of the Cold War

While I found the plot bogged down in the middle and became a bit tedious, I enjoyed the romp though a time when the USSR and the U.S. pointed nuclear weapons at each other and children on both sides lived in fear of impending
