More About the Author

10 June, 2014

It's time to get serious about my writing again. That's been hard to do with my life framed by milking cows, making cheese and raising vegetables. But Faucon and Edmund, the sleuths from my new mystery series, are chattering away in my head, demanding that I at least start taking notes. Even more motivating is the fact that the temperatures here in Arizona have now climbed over the 100 degree mark. Air conditioning is a wonderful thing.

And now, back to your regular programming.

Denise Domning is the award-winning, best-selling author of eleven historical novels and the co-author with Monica Sarli of one gritty, hard-bitten memoir of addiction and recovery. Of the two genres she frankly prefers the rats, grime and fleas of the Twelfth Century over the ghettos and drug use of modern Kansas City. For Denise, writing means using words as her time machine and painting an accurate portrait of a past. Open any of her novels, whether Twelfth, Thirteenth, Sixteenth or Nineteenth Century, and step into a bygone era. As one reviewer put it "...you live the life and the language, smell the odors of unwashed humanity, and hear the sucking sounds as your flimsy shoes slog through mud and muck." Now doesn't that sound romantic?

Denise and her husband Ed live on a farm in Cornville (yes, Cornville), Arizona, where they plant veggies, milk cows and have an Easter egg hunt every day.

mediocre 8 Nov. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
the first story was the most disappointing. Bitner usually has more substance to her writing. When I read one of her earlier books, ("Embers of the Heart" I think the title was), I was deeply moved. Subsequent titles were almost as involving. Perhaps because this was a short story there was no plot or character development. The heroine went from aversion to love without our understanding fully how that happened.
The second story was the best. I loved the heroine and her motivations seemed to go beyond the standard "I'm not good enough for him" formula. It was on the strength of this tale that I rated the book as high as I did.
The third story was awful, filled with western cliches. I don't understand why authors of western romance feel the need to resort to stereopyical cowboy dialogue in order to convey the setting. It speaks of poor writing--very amaturish.
