About Author and Blog

Knowledge is a powerful thing, and I’ve always believed sharing might improve someone else’s life. Thus the reason for this blog is to share what I’ve learned over the years about fitness, health, and veganism. I’m also a writer and when the mood hits me a story or two may populate my pages.

I’m a New Yorker since the age of nine. A work in progress, I’m forever changing to become the true me. I’ve spent many years in the Financial Services Industry, acquired all the credentials, MBA in Finance and several licenses, to boost my career. But a new consciousness is pushing through allowing me to trail other facets of my personality. We all have some inkling of our true selves when we are children. I did. I have the soul and mind of an artist. Professional trained as a dancer, athletically gifted, I’ve never left that side of me, just channeled my talent to other areas.

Ballet slippersThe dancer in me is forever yearning to move. I’ve channeled that thirst into fitness. I hung up my ballet slippers for a pair of running shoes and became a fitness enthusiast. I’ve challenged my body and completed ten marathons, domestic and international, and countless races.

Running shoesI can’t start my day without a sweaty run, and thirty minutes  or more of stretching my muscles beyond limits with yoga.I live a lifestyle of health and fitness – a vegan for many years, but I have my foibles- coffee. I can’t start my day without a  steaming cup in my hand.

I’ve been an avid reader and writer of literature for years. In 2014, I  finished my first novel, By Chance. In 2015, I published my second novel, Chasing Victoria. Currently, I’m working on my third book. Writing has been a challenge, and like a marathon it takes preparation and mental tenacity to complete the journey.

My books, By Chance and Chasing Victoria, are fiction thrillers available on major online book retailers: Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, Lulu.com, Smashwords.com, Scribd.com, and others.

    Hi Denise,
    Thanks for the follow. I thoroughly enjoyed reading your about. I could definitely relate in many ways. I one hundred percent feel knowledge is so powerful – stress this to my children constantly. I too believe we’re always searching for the ‘true us’ and I explore aspects of my personality through food, although I work in finance myself. That’s actually in my Instagram profile”cooking is my artistic expression.” 😃 My husband too is a writer – I look forward to reading more of your posts.

    1. Hi Veganrescue! It’s great you have a means to express yourself artistically. We all need that outlet in this stressful world, especially if you have little ones to care for. I’m looking forward to visiting your site for new vegan dishes. Love to experiment, although I’m not the best of cooks. But your recipes look awesome can’t wait. 🙂
