Denise’s love of books and for animals have merged together to create a children’s book series that entertains as it educates. She serves on a volunteer committee for Friends of the Providence Animal Care & Control Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, dedicated to supporting the animals in the city of Providence. For more information about Friends of the PACCC, visit friendsofpaccc.org. Denise is a member of the Association of Rhode Island Authors. She lives in Southern New England with her husband Ernie and their sweet, rescue dog, Jax. A percentage of her book sales are donated to local animal shelters.
