Most people know me as Deni. I'm the author of the Ellie Bernstein/Lt. Peter Miller "diet club" mysteries: STRANGLE A LOAF OF ITALIAN BREAD, THROW DARTS AT A CHEECECAKE, BEAT UP A COOKIE and CHAIN A LAMB CHOP TO THE BED. As Mary Ellen Dennis I write historical fiction (i.e. THE LANDLORD'S BLACK-EYED DAUGHTER). Some of my other published novels are FIFTY CENTS FOR YOUR SOUL and EYE OF NEWT. I'm married to novelist Gordon Aalborg, author of DINING WITH DEVILS - a Tasmanian Thriller - and 29 other books.
