Denise Fisher is a Colorado native with a master’s degree in communication development from Colorado State University. Her work has appeared in Camas Magazine and Progenitor Art & Literary Journal. Her essay, “Tomorrow’s Water Wisdoms: Interpretations of the Allen True Murals,” has been published by the Colorado Water Resources Research Institute and distributed in brochure format at the Colorado State Capital. Her thesis, Water Contours, has been published electronically on the Poudre Heritage Alliance web site. After working for thirteen years as a web site developer, Denise has recently returned to writing and is currently working on a collection of personal essays. Denise also has this thing for gardening, which led to her becoming a CSU Extension Master Gardener in 2006, and co-founding the Timnath Community Garden, also in 2006. In between writing and gazing at her garden, she can be found keeping bees, baking bread, fermenting sauerkraut or ginger ale, or turning a large-scale compost pile with the loader on her 1959 Ford tractor. Denise lives in Timnath with her partner, two cats, one dog, and eight chickens.
