About Me

Denise Miller Holmes is Director of Words for the Journey Christian Writers’ Guild, where she enjoys teaching writers how to write.

She also loves exploring biblical topics, and especially researching and communicating what Christians believe about the world around them.  She sometimes turns established viewpoints on end.

Even though she loves literature and wanted to major in English lit, she chose to major in Journalism at the University of Southern California, which awarded her a B.A. degree in 1980. In 1991, she completed her Masters courses in Counseling Psychology.

For the past two years, she has been teaching lessons to writers’ groups on the fine art of fiction writing, as well as holding bi-monthly seminars on the same subject in her home…with great reviews.

Currently, she explores Christian thought on her website RedHotRead.com and is writing two primers in fiction writing, with plans to self-publish them as Kindle e-books.

SciFi Mystery -- filled with short articles about SciFi, Mystery, Fantasy, and genuinely weird stuff.

Red Hot Read Savvy Articles on Christian thought.

Red Hot Writing Tips -- where she teaches writing instruction.

Denise Miller Holmes (the site you're on) is her main site and her "author blog." Here you will find announcements of what Denise is up to in her writing, as well as fun posts about wacky holidays, unique people, weird websites, recipes, and more!

Denise is a member of the writers' association American Christian Fiction Writers. She has been a Christian for over 38 years.
