Denise BarnesDenise Barnes has sold lipstick in a Denver store, modelled in Atlanta, assisted the UN Narcotics Director in Geneva, chauffeured a Swiss Gnome in Zurich, assisted a famous film producer in the UK, and cooked in a sanatorium in Germany, giving rise to her first book: from Bad to Wurst: Bavarian adventures of a veggie cook (pub. 2008).

She sold her estate agency business in 2005 to the wrong buyers and Seller Beware: How Not To Sell Your Business (Biteback Publishing 2013) was the result.

Denise is a first-time contributor to the USA ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ series. Her story, The Challenge, in their 200th book The Joy of Less, was recently featured as a highlight of ‘Good Morning America.’
