Denise Mills grew up in Wongarbon, a small village home to a few hundred people. She has tried bigger towns and glanced at cities, but it’s village life for her, currently Millthorpe, Australia. A 20 minute drive with cow and sheep scattered views takes her to the city of Orange, known for its wine, food, and live music. ‘Home’ is a partially owned, semi-detached, void of television, but fully equipped with books, music and teenage son.
Her previous life saw her perform a 10 year role as a Tax Accountant, and despite making good progress in her career, it wasn’t quite the right world for her. She went on to work as a Freelance Writer and has featured in many print and online publications, including Huffington Post, Elephant Journal and Feminartsy to name a few. She also had a lucrative position at Clint’s Crazy Bargains in her teens, where she priced $2 undies and was allowed to smoke in store.
Denise’s passion for lifting women’s voices combined with a love for expression and creativity sparked the beginning of the Letters Anthology. Originally intended as a book, the project morphed into an online space which unites women worldwide through shared experiences. Go check it out, if you want.
In her spare time, this charming woman enjoys writing about herself in third person. She also loves the shit out of the Oxford comma (and the Oxford coma), and regularly starts sentences with ‘but’ and ‘and’ in an effort to make old people cranky. She is a UFC fanatic, does a breathtaking rendition of Old McDonald in Japanese and can sing the alphabet backwards, really fast.
She uses this site, Words and World, mainly for blogging about books, because they’re tops!
