Denise Hunter is the internationally published bestselling author of more than 20 books, including Dancing with Fireflies and The Convenient Groom. She has won The Holt Medallion Award, The Reader’s Choice Award, The Foreword Book of the Year Award, and is a RITA finalist.
“Every good writer has some God-given talent,” Denise said. “But it’s up to the writer to improve his/her craft.” After writing more than 30 books and reading tons of books on writing, she believes a lot of the process now comes organically for her. But doubt still creeps in.
“ are moments when I think my WIP (work in progress) is the worst thing ever written. That’s when my crit partner steps in and reminds me I always feel this way in the middle of the book.”
